I recently had the privilege- yes, I intend that word- to attend the funeral of a beautiful friend, whom I would never have the chance to meet. Her name was Sarah. She was a mom of three- her kid's ages are similar to my three. She was a wife of 10 years- she passed just … Continue reading Anchored
It's been absolutely crazy around here as we condense 4300 square feet into what will be ONE Uhaul load across the country to Tennessee.
