Sawyer 7 months

Posted by & filed under Personal.

In an attempt to start blogging more, I’m starting a series for my little blog called Adventures in CA.  With Matt working at a start up company, you never know how long the job will last and how long we’ll get to stay here…maybe 6 months – a year, maybe forever.  With that in mind,… Read more »
