I didn't really have much time to craft a long, involved post this weekend. We spent all of Friday "in town" (and when you live in a rural area, that's a big deal); on Saturday we helped Emily and Forrest move into their new apartment (which is ADORABLE), and on Sunday Anna and I went… Continue reading Long Weekend, Quick Post

I have to admit, I'm so excited about posting my first review on this new blog.
