Happy Friday to us all! Many of you are celebrating spring holidays this week and weekend, so whether you’re traveling or just sticking home I hope it’s a good one.
Persephone Lounge is Open to Cheese
…Cheesy songs, that is. Well, I think we’re open to actual cheese too. But since the weather is finally warming up for a lot of people, I was inspired to post this lovely song from the totally not-cheesy television program, The Brady Bunch.
Good morning, and happy Tuesday to us all. I thought we could engage in some commiserating today, because doing so has been scientifically proven to bond people as a group.
It’s the weekend (weekend!) so what better excuse do you need to sip a drink or two in the Persephone Lounge?
