Things are starting to get better in my world. I’m done whinging 🙂 My colleague and friend is also on sabbatical, and he came to visit us in Massachusetts.

We are frequently traveling so calling a particular church “home” is a bit tricky. I also, until recently, worked on Sundays (my choice, […]
Hikes are great. Friends are great. Family are great. Put them together? Perfection!
