13 Dec Tropic Like It’s Hot
We are longing for sunshine, and honestly just longing to see other people. Hold this – close your eyes, and turn up the lights bright – are you warm? Is it bright? Are you in a tropical paradise walking through low tide with turtles in the Maldives? We can always dream, and most of us will continue to dream about tropical drinks with pals for a while. This is perfect for beach virtual background on zoom, and the drinks are better than an all-inclusive resort.
