New England

This August Taylor and I went to New England to visit my folks. It was her first time on an airplane since she was one and a half. Due to how young she was, she really doesn't remember it. Ever since Tay learned that we would be going to visit Papa and Grandma she has… Continue reading New England

That is what I love about nature. This is the escape I crave. As I sit and… Continue reading Insignificant Significance
