Smothered, Covered, Chopped-Florida Spring Break Part Two

    I mentioned in part one the traffic hell we experienced on the road to Destin. Just after the Alabama rooster incident, Ella got car sick and had "sick" all over her clothes. Thank God she had layers on (us Midwesterners, always ready), so we literally stripped her down in an abandoned parking lot, … Continue reading Smothered, Covered, Chopped-Florida Spring Break Part Two

Our Dog Has a Netflix Profile and Other Random Bits #StreamTeam

Our Promise to Buddy

  As I am writing this, I am being interrupted by one of my favorite people in this world. Our dog, Buddy. I know he isn't "people" but to our family, he is.
