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 »

House Sitting Job Needed

We'd love to spend the month of April house sitting somewhere in the south. For us, that means the Virginias or Carolinas, Georgia, Tennessee, Kentucky.
