Pre-Snow Sunday + Spaghetti Squash (local) Meat Marinara

I live for Sundays.  It’s the sleep-in, make breakfast, drink my whole damn coffee (or two), and enjoy the scenery day I exist for.  Even when I’m in Charlottesville (especially when I’m here) and I know I’m going to be at MADabolic in the morning, the pace is still distinctly different.  The only thing better…

When Life Takes Your Hammer, Pump the Breaks
