What a wonderful day!

Middle name drama…It looks like Emily’s middle name will be changing… So, I traveled home this past weekend to Illinois. I flew into Chicago, then drove to my hometown, Bloomington, Illinois.  My sister and her husband also met me there from Indianapolis, and my little brother, Bryant, came home from college for the weekend.  It was […]
