The last month or so has been really hard for everyone around the world. The dreaded COVID-19 virus has wreaked havoc across the globe, forcing many of us back into our homes in order to protect ourselves and the ones we love. While we understand the importance of social distancing at this time of distress, we can’t help but long to spend time in the fresh Arkansas air with our friends and families. Until it is safe to come out again, we can start planning which parts of town we’re going to visit first.
