The Sunday Post: Post Turkey Day Hash

Are you still eating leftovers? Turkey soup, maybe? Turkey sandwiches? I didn’t really have any turkey on Thanksgiving since I was too full by the time there was room on my plate. I’m calling this post a “hash” because it’s got a little bit of everything in it. Yes, I’m telling you right up front…

The Sunday Post: Reset

I’ve been on the road for a few days and today I walked downtown Fredericksburg for the first time in three months, enjoying the balmy November temperatures. I visited a couple of my favorite spots and spent some time with a dear friend while we enjoyed a cup of coffee before grabbing some takeout at…

The Sunday Post: A Drive in the Park

The Sunday Post: Breathing Room

In today’s post, as promised, I’m sharing a few more pictures from our outing to Chattooga Belle Farms. The slideshow below includes a few of my favorites, some of which Jeremy took when I asked him to hold my camera for a while. As I wrote earlier, it was a great opportunity to just do…

The Sunday Post: Progress Report

It was just over four months ago that everything came crashing down on me and I had no idea what I was going to do next. I really didn’t know how I was going to get through it and all I could think about was trying to figure out a way to turn back the…
