Last week I was struggling with the notion that my life had gotten … Continue reading

Five on Friday: October Down Time

It’s sort of an in-between time where we live. The leaves are just starting to change color, and we still have afternoons with temperatures in the 70s.

Do you love our blog? We do! Well, I can only speak for myself, but so far, it has provided Lynn and me with a great opportunity to collaborate, to brainstorm ideas, and to express our creative selves.
