Did anyone else have a crazy week last week or was it just me? I feel like I’m tangled in to-do lists that never seem to end. The days are getting shorter and add packing, traveling, and preparing thanksgiving meals on top and our lists can almost get out of control. This past weekend I… Continue reading »

When I was a very young child, I lived with my grandparents in a very remote countryside in Southeast Asia.
