How Many Summers?

Detours

Detours

- Detours - Life doesn’t always go as planned…..we’ve all faced that before. I found myself really pondering that lately as a detour was thrown smack in my face. The county decided to close, as in entirely shut down, the road that we drive several times a day in order...
