  • Shenandoah Road Trip

  • We picked some dates in October to make a little fall getaway to Shenandoah National Park. Little did we know that fall foliage wouldn't be peaking for another two weeks, and when it did it would be the worst color on record for the last several decades. Too little rain means too little color in the[...]

I also went on a trip to Ireland with[...]
