Snapshots – The Past Week in Photos

  Watermelon Margarita   Sign I found at Michaels.  I love it when Joshua shows up.   Getting the mail in should not be such a painful reminder. I will forever hate filling out medical forms.  The numbers don't add up right. The first book I read after we lost Josh was Angie Smith's, I… Continue reading Snapshots – The Past Week in Photos
