A Couple of Munchkins

My niece and nephew came down to visit with my mom and sister in law a couple of weekends ago. I love being around my family and it is always fun to have them come visit. I can’t wait to get a couple sets of chairs to put outside so we can spend more time […]


The habit of writing here definitely begets more writing. My head was cluttered and the urge to just be away from writing in this space overtook me.
