To Save a Mockingbird

Tis the season for nests and baby birds everywhere! We were fortunate when a finch family nested in the floral arrangement hanging on our front storm door.

Setting Goals or Making Wishes?

Setting goals is great. Getting goals is much better! We can spend a lot of time writing out detailed goals and elaborate action plans, but unless we change something we do every day, we can't hope to see any real movement towards reaching our hopes and dreams.
