Snow Dance

There are three people in this house who love snow and one person who is just meh. I’m the meh. I was born in the South for a reason. But even I will admit that flurries like the ones below are beautiful. Mind you, I wasn’t out doing a happy dance in them, but thatContinue reading “Snow Dance”

This was back when Ash was 6 and signing her name was still a novelty. So muchContinue reading “Autograph”
