Trick-or-Treat 2016

Yesterday was Halloween! Such an exciting time of year for us. I usually put up a ton of decorations and go all crazy. Things have been very crazy this year, as some of you have previously read. I still do not feel fully moved in yet, and with all the...

Bestie’s Knee Surgery

I have been so insanely busy! Building dog kennels and still downsizing my house. I will say building dog kennels was extremely physically exhausting. Muscles hurt I didn’t even know I had. So that kept me fairly active. I did stop running once I realized my shoes were just not...

2,200 Mile Road Trip With Kids & Pets
