I hope everyone had a great Independence Day weekend. I ended up taking off on Thursday, giving Bart and me a long, 4-day weekend. While we didn’t do anything super exciting or earth-shattering, it turned out to be a really great opportunity to hang out, relax a bit, and also be productive in one of our last weeks before the baby comes.
