Autumn in Alabama; It’s Still about Family

November 22, 2018 (by Angela) One post per month has not been the intention, but it has been the reality of late. Life has stayed very busy for us since I returned from the New England Get Away. Immediately, I was back to doing things related to family. Of course, I went to visit Mom…

New England: A Needed Change of Pace and Place

October 17, 2018 (by Angela) It’s been a month since I’ve had time to think about writing, and quite a bit has happened since then.

No, more rain is not the unfortunate things to which I am referring, though when one wants to be out and about exploring, too much rain is unfortunate.
