Self-Care Isn't Selfish

Reactions and Reviews
Birthday in the midst of pandemic? No problem. Blanket and Board put together an amazing evening to help usher in my 39th trip around the sun. The location (Highland Park) was perfect - dappled sun, even ground, and great people-watching. The fare was delectable: sweet, salty, crunchy, and chewy. The convenience alone was worth the price. We simply sauntered up to the spot at the appointed time, and the mood was set for a lovely time. When we were ready to go home, we texted for clean up. Thank you Blanket & Board! I'm telling everyone!
