My LifeProof Adventures

Several months ago I had a crazy dream. I’m not quite sure if it was fueled by my desire for a LifeProof cellphone case, pregnancy hormones or both…but it was frightening.  Well, frightening to anyone who is dependent in any way on their smartphone. In my dream I was hovering over a
