• This is the Day

    This is it. Stacy sits next to me on the plane to Edinburgh, Scotland, reading a fantasy novel about dragons. As surreal as this feels, we may as well be on our way to fight dragons ourselves.

  • Europe Anticipation

    It seems Mark & Nita have fallen in love with France.  After honeymooning there a few years ago and going back twice since, they decided to rent an apartment in Avignon for a month and invite friends to come visit.  Marcie, Beth & I were so glad that we took them up on the offer.  The apartment was beautiful, the food delicious, the…
