Crossroads…

There’s a road near our home here in France that has significance for us. Actually, it’s an intersection on this road. A crossroads. About five years ago we decided to ride our bicycles on one of France’s many designated and well marked bike paths, #29. The path isn’t near to where we were staying that summer but we had an opportunity to house-sit further north so we took advantage of new areas to explore. As we continued on...

The sun streaming in through the large south-facing windows casts a warm embrace on this chilly winter day.

I’m thankful that I’ve had some time this week...
