Road Trip Complete!

After 1750 miles (in addition to the 670 from LA to SLC), I am finally “chillin” in Michigan…both literally and figuratively. Actually, the weather has warmed up a bit, so it’s a balmy 31 right now. Our apartment won’t be ready until January 18, so we are basking in the generosity of the Pearce family […]
