So my Red, White and Blue week last week didn’t work out as I expected. I was getting ready to travel.....19 hour airplane trip....and I’ll be gone almost a month. I had so many things to do and even though I thought I could fit everything in....it just didn’t happen. So I’m going to save… Continue reading Retiring Favorite – En Route
