Wow! It's been so long since I have been on here. I have missed it. The reason I've been gone is because I just recently moved! Whew. So exhausting. I hate moving, but...the place I was in just didn't fit right. So I'm living "off the grid" in a beautiful mountain community now, for at… Continue reading This Blog Is NOT Dead!
