    dust collectors, trinkets, useless crap. Whatever you want to call them we all know about chachkas and probably know someone with a dusty collection sitting in a glass cabinet in a dining room that never gets used.

It was one of those long weekends that seemed even LONGER, which is amazing, and consisted of a bunch of everything and not really anything all at the same time. Lots of little events and small adventures with some chill time in between. Oh […]
