I thought I […]

Every now and then (when I get backed up on the blog because I haven’t made time to organize my thoughts and write), I title a post “random.” And that is exactly what it is. Random pictures, random thoughts, randomness of every color because –man, life is full! Let’s start with Rolo’s birthday. She got a “happy birthday” bone and […]
