The Weekender:

If you were out of town last weekend you really missed a great weekend in Charlotte. Well, maybe you were somewhere tropical, and in that case I’m jealous. Anyways, can you believe the weekend is here already? It’s a good thing this was a short week because last weekend really took it out of me and going back to work was rough. Have a great weekend!
