• My One Word

    Happy 2012 y’all! It’s been a long break since the last post, but sometimes you just do what you have to do to get by, you know? With a trucker, 4 kids, Christmas, New Year’s, and a little vacation, I got a little busy, but had a lot of fun. Then, this past Thursday, my […]

I’m not sure why, other than the fact that between the two of us, we have a very large, loving, incredible, […]
