During the summer of COVID my family and I had time to build a tree house. I’m not the most talented in the area of building things, but, with a little bit of help, we were able to accomplish it! A huge thanks goes out to my neighbors who let me borrow tools, helped haul […]
Things that relate more to me than to you.
Lily now has school online thanks to our nations pandemic. However, she’s in one of the best rooms in the house, has her cat to keep her company, and snacks are close by. Doesn’t sound too shabby!
On January 1st I started a photo a day challenge and you can see my photos over at stormwp.wordpress.com. I’m not following any sort of list or recommendations but rather just taking a photo a day. Turns out that taking a photo a day is both easy and hard. Some days I see lots of […]
