I’m nervous. My heart is racing. I have no idea why I’m doing this. You guys, in approximately 2 hours I’m going to our brand new H&M. How brand new? It opened….yesterday. #officiallylostmymarbles Is this a mistake? Am I even ready? Should I wear a camouflage helmet and bring trail mix in case of a […]
