I used to love sitting in the quiet early morning with my tea, watching Good Morning America and having a few minutes to myself before the rush of our days began. These… Continue reading Look on the Bright Side
After a week of recovering from our vacation and being so incredibly thankful that our family was able to spend time together and get away, I thought I would share our experience with everyone that might be looking for a new place to explore whenever this country is able to fully open once again (it… Continue reading Life in the 30A Corridor
Well, another school year has come and gone, no matter how strange the ending, and I most definitely exhaled a sigh of relief Thursday evening.
