Spring Time Tour

Today is going to be such a beautiful day here in Michigan (high 70’s), so I thought I’d show you around our 5 acre haven!  Plus lots of sunshine will put people in a great mood and we always need more of that.

You may not know this about me but I have some mild social anxiety issues…ok basically I’m a rock star at awkwardness.  I’m the person who says the wrong thing at the wrong time and then doesn’t know how to correct myself.
