Hey hey friends! I have been a busy bee lately and haven't checked in for awhile. I just want to do a fast forward of life and get us up to speed so this might be a little all over the place, but that's pretty much me anyway. I ran away to the mountains for … Continue reading Let’s Catch Up
Good day to you, my Lords and Ladies! My birthday was a couple of weeks ago and I kept with tradition and went to the Renaissance Festival in Larkspur, Colorado.
