Farewell, friends

by Ashley on November 28, 2011

His eyes get really big when he sees the pages with lots of black–like that with the carrot and one with an enormous plus sign. I’ll always remember it […]

Fortunately, the storm didn’t cause much damage around us, and we weren’t seriously impacted (save for some anxious anticipation and cabin fever).
