March Reading Recap
This was kind of a weird month, like for most people, because we had spring break in the middle and all sorts of things go on (like we listed and sold our house!). I finished four books, but am over halfway through a realllly long but good one, so I feel li...

Jonathan's working tonight, and I'm sort of determined to finish this series of posts before 2017 rings it in! Ha! Backstory Q1 Q2 July/August/September we cruised right along and hit some more highlights (serious highlights) of the year. A close second to ...
