Sunday Scratches is where I share the little stuff that has happened throughout the week. In hockey, “scratches” are people who are on the roster but do not play in the game. On the blog, “scratches” are the things that have happened to me throughout the week that aren’t necessarily big enough to be an entire post.
Please note, this post may contain affiliate links that I could make a commission off of. Learn more.
Happy Sunday! Let’s check out this week’s scratches!
