My Backyard is an Evil Place

When we moved to our house in May, I was super excited about our backyard. We have a ridiculously large yard, with a covered patio, and a huge shady tree and its privacy fenced on all sides. I imagined spending tons of time out there with Sadie, nights spend by our fire pit, tons of […]

The Scariest Moment

I’m pretty sure the experience I’m about to tell you all is the scariest thing I’ve ever gone through in my life.  Minus having to walk down the spiral staircase of death.
