My Favorite House

It has been a busy six months! After I had surgery in the fall(check out my previous post), we packed up, sold our house, and moved 650 miles northwest of Mississippi to the severely underrated state of Nebraska. Our new digs are on the edge of town which has views of a small lake and […]
