Sweet Trip

Berrien Springs Trip Since its been three years since I'd seen my dear friend Marcy, Ronald and I decided 6 months in advance that we would visit when she came home this summer from Taiwan.

An example in so many ways

Road trip to Tennessee again. Except this time not so fun! The bad news came, at first unexpected. It took about 30 minutes of thinking to finally get myself to imagine the impossible.
