My husband, daughter, and I moved two weeks ago out of our home of twelve years into a rental house just four doors down the street. Hurricane Matthew hit Hilton Head Island on Saturday, October 8, 2016, and our little old house was struck by a large, heavy oak tree. While the roof did not […]

I love listening to podcasts and I do it a lot. If you ever see me in person chances are high I will have on my bright blue iPod Shuffle with a wrap around ear bud in one ear (usually the right). I wear one earbud often especially when I drive so that I can […]
