Taking a little {Christmas} break…

Remember when I used to try to blog once a day… a minimum of at least 5 posts per week?  With this holiday season for some reason, blogging has escaped me.  I guess we’ll consider it my “Christmas break” from blogging… The new year is quickly approaching and I am hoping to be back, better […]

Yesterday we gave our Thanks.
