I almost fell after my shoe became entangled in the tuber that stretched across the path. My body responded […]
Brad and I have been discussing doing some cosmetic updates to our home. We’ve been here for 23 years, and some of our furniture just as long. Almost. Almost. At least that’s been my stance as far as our green leather, brass tacked, reclining sofa and love seat are concerned. Now that our son has […]
