The Future and the Past

In the last week I have certainly touched on all steps of the Circle of Life. Last Sunday we had Chelsea and her husband Sheldon and their new baby Daniel over for lunch. Chelsea was one of Lily's bridesmaids but they have not lived in the same area for a few years and this was …

The Knowledge

Last weekend the Mother City was blessed with the most glorious weather!

Three Butterflies
