Fall Fun

Two weekends ago we finally went pumpkin picking.  Even though Teddy is almost 2 years old this is the first time we've been.  Last October was really rough with two deaths in our family and the last thing we were thinking about was pumpkins.  So this year we knew we had to make it a… Continue reading Fall Fun

Hello from the Dirty South

My husband was offered an exciting new job opportunity in the Raleigh-Durham, NC area last month.
