I did a 10-mile run with a friend who lives over by the capitol and we started the route from her home…
Early last night I was in the car with the girls when we drove by this, and Marlo starting screaming, “It’s de CAHP-EEE-TOLE! It’s de CAHP-EEE-TOLE!” I confirmed that it was indeed the capitol and proud that she could distinguish it from the temple. An…
A snapshot along a hike, the source of inspiration for my middle name.
