When life gives you strawberries…

Strawberry jam isn’t exactly the cure for a bad day. But, if there is one thing I know, it’s to enjoy each day and every single moment in it. It is in the best laid plans for the day that go awry that unknown opportunities arise. Monday was one of those days. We had been at a {Read More…}

Great Expectations

Great expectations are easy to come by and hard to live with. No matter how many people tell you how much you DO NOT need when traveling on the road, it takes your own experiences to come to this realization. You don’t even have to be behind the wheel of an RV to take advantage {Read More…}
