A family outing

Mother’s Day turned out to have a theme in our house. We spent the day at the Nashville Zoo before capping the day by seeing The Jungle Book. What a glorious day! Love spending it with my family. Love spending it outside. Love seeing familiar animal faces, and a few new ones too! I’ll upload […]

She had originally planned on visiting Barcelona, Madrid, and Granada this week for spring break, but due to the terrible situation in Belgium, she had to cancel her plans. Instead of taking […]
