  • Meet Blaze (Also, I’m Exhausted!)

    I guess I’d forgotten how much energy young dogs have. Because we’ve had a new and young dog for about 9-10 hours and I AM EXHAUSTED. 😆 This beautiful girl is Blaze! We debated as a family for the past week about what to name her, and no one really came up with a name …

    This photo above is from Christmas 2018 and shows what the front patio area of our house looks like in a normal year when I do the exterior Christmas decorations. I’ve skipped a couple years recently for personal reasons — including last year. With all that we’ve gone through in 2020, though, I was really …
