Standing Still

Do you ever get that feeling like you just want to run away from it all? Even if only for a little bit? It doesn’t really matter where. It could be anywhere. Well…actually with all of the snow we’ve been getting here in Wisconsin, somewhere a little warmer and with a little less blizzard would […]

So, I finally did it! Sort of. I actually figured out how to use Instagram. I know. I know. Impressive, right? (HA!) I mean, I knew that it was for showcasing pictures and everything…but up until this week I unknowingly had the blog account set to private, which does not help me out at all. […]
