Which is a blessing! Frankly, all I did to reach this "milestone" was breathe, eat, and drink, but it's okay, I'm graciously taking all the congrats that people are giving me. This will be a big year, we'll be selling the house we raised t... Read more

Hiked the Freedom Trail on Saturday!
Tuesday, September 24, 2019      4 comments

Ooohhh, it was exhausting. Trail itself is only 2.5 miles, but we somehow turned it into 9 miles, with all the stops and exploring of the historical sites! Churches, cemetaries, the USS Constitution, Boston Harbor, are just some of the sit... Read more
