Smoky Mountain Fly

Doug and I have done lots of camping and lots of hiking, but up until last weekend we had never put the two together. We decided that we would embark on our very first backpacking trip over the long Fourth of July weekend. We drove out to Cherokee, NC and packed into the Great SmokyContinue reading “Smoky Mountain Fly”

An Ode to Agnes

So, first things first. While we were gone, the temperaturesContinue reading “We’re Back!”

It’s officially the season where the days are getting longer and our to-do list follows suit. It seems that for every task we cross off the list, we add on at least two more. With the increasing daylight hours and our abundance of spring projects, we’ve been left with no time for typing. So, here’sContinue reading “No Time for Typing”
