Baby Franklin Turns Two

Our little boy is TWO today! Gosh, isn’t he cute?! This little man was once a decision we weren’t sure about. But, goodness, I couldn’t be more thankful we added him to our family. He is the perfect completion. His big brother and sister just adore him. They want to hold his hand everywhere he […]

Is That Really Our Home?!

I wanted to do my very best. All of that was set aside and every […]
