You know, more into the world in which I live.  IContinue reading “Joyful Journeys”

A Water Mindset

I’m drinking a glass of ice water while I type this. I really like ice water, although I am pretty sure that is unimportant information.

Making Snow Days Memories

There is an ice storm that has gone through Central Tennessee where I live, and I understand it will be followed by a snow storm so life is a little different today than it was this time last week.
