OK, I will just go ahead and let you know upfront that I could not get the images to “slideshow” in the back as planned 🙂 I put some effort in, it didn’t happen, and an executive decision was made to go ahead and just upload the pictures the old fashioned way for now and try again next time (insert … Read More

We are within the last couple of weeks of the holiday season and I have no idea how we got here. I think the older I get the faster time flows (it is relative).

I would like to start off by sending positive energy to everyone that has a child in school! To those that are handling more than one child….multiply the energy by infinity. For each additional kid.

Wild Path

Casey HaywoodUncategorizedLeave a Comment

It has definitely been a wild path recently, in that life has been exciting and uncertain at times. Like being on an epic roller coaster that drops you into a free fall and you’re in it for so long that your stomach is coming out past your teeth and you know for certain that isn’t supposed to happen.
