The face-covering (a.k.a. masks) mandate has been lifted in Dallas. According to the NBC News:

Dallas officials have announced changes to COVID-19 restrictions following Gov. Greg Abbott’s executive order forbidding governments from require face coverings for many circumstances.

Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson announced he is rescinding his mask mandate for city buildings. The changes will go into effect Friday, May 21 at 8:00 p.m.

Oh, happy day!

We enjoyed the past twenty-four hours hugging, sitting close to, eating with, walking with, and HUGGING our dear friends Jeff and Jen, as they included us in their summer road trip. We gathered! Our reunion was short and nothing short of fabulous. I showed them around Downtown and they experienced humid-hot Dallas. Since we have a thirty-four-year friendship, the temps didn’t persuade us too much from walking and eating outside and spending quality time together.

I am so happy to be gathering with friends again. My heart is so full. Bring on framily reunions.

Stay well. Stay curious. Have FUN and HUG every day.
