I love coffee. I know I have mentioned it before, but there it is. I love it.

How do they even know what Snapchat is?! It … [Read more...] about June is Internet Safety Month
I’m always amazed at the new growth after a week. And last week I did my garden tour a little later than I had originally planned, so it hasn’t been a full week, but the changes are noticeable.
