Road Trip to Minnesota: Day 2 – Wyoming

We woke up to a cold, snowy morning in Salt Lake City.  A text message from my friend in Laramie was beeping.  I’m so thankful for Christi.  She kept me and Paul updated on road conditions and survival tips.  Apparently, traversing I-80 during a snowstorm isn’t a smart idea.  Of course, we waited until mid-April thinking such weather events would… Read more »

I will admit that I am not a very good gift giver. I’m not the worst gift giver. That title goes to my grandmother. She once gave my sister empty decorated type boxes as a Christmas gift. Seriously. Boxes.  You know the kind you usually fill with a gift…Not to mention my sister was 14 years old at the time…. Read more »
