Our weather here in Central PA lately has been crazy. Hot, cold, warm, hottish, warmish, freezing, spring flowery, heavy jacket, light jacket, no jacket, flip flops, snow, scarves, arctic, tropical, rain, thunder storm, and back to warmish.

1046 miles. 16 travel hours. 1 chick. 1 bag. Last weekend I made a quick trip to Maine. Unfortunately, it was to attend a funeral, but a funeral I wouldn’t have missed. Making the trip was well worth the time spent connecting with friends I hadn’t seen in years. The service was a life celebration… Read More The Thing about Traveling Light
