My Favorite Walk

Every day I’m at my orchard, I go on this incredible walk.  It’s a pretty long trek (about five miles) that goes out through the utterly gorgeous landscape. Off I went on the long country road…. I saw a man teaching a little boy how to fish along a stream- pure country cuteness. The woodland […]

The Ripe Young Age of Five
