It's About Time for Something New Here!

Since moving to Rice Lake, Wisconsin in April 2012, we haven't done a whole lot of traveling that we've written about. I'm going to try to make sure and write about our travels this month though in May 2013. This month's trip will take us out of the snow we just had on May 2 … Continue reading »

New Jersey is beautifully sunny. The friends we've made here are connected at our core. But we just … Continue reading »

Snow in Jersey

We had our first stick-to-the-ground snow here in Blackwood New Jersey the other day. Of course it all melted by lunchtime. Fiona was excited anyhow. We've all suffered from terrible colds: sneezing, coughing, aches, fevers, yuck, yuck, yuck! I think we're almost all well. I hope we can get out this weekend and enjoy the … Continue reading »
