We’re approaching the end of May, which means we’re just a handful of weeks the midpoint of 2022 already. If you’re like me, you’re wondering where the year has gone. Maybe it has to do with life in the northeastern US where I live, where we’ve really just had our first week of warm weather. Didn’t winter just end?
