Our Most Romantic Late Summer Date Night

eering over to the other side of the road, I spotted it immediately. The hidden trail. It was narrow and overgrown, the entrance only obvious to those who know it's there. We parked the truck on the side of the road and started down the meandering...

Quick Read: My Latest Find

Blueberry Picking

Back Porch Birthday Dinner

A few weeks ago, my family and I celebrated my mom's birthday. Since summer is sadly coming to an end (nooooo), I thought a back porch dinner would be just what the doctor ordered. My mom and I went down in the basement and lugged up one of the big white folding...
