By Jill | April 22, 2022

Now that the sun is coming back into our lives from the shorter days of winter, it’s time to assess available eyewear. I’m pretty light sensitive, so I have a stash of sunglasses in many places: the car, the table in the foyer, my purse, and my shopping bag. There’s also a back-up collection of…
