In January, Josh and I booked out a four-day cruise from an email offer that we couldn’t refuse.  How time passes so quickly, I’ll never know, but we went on that cruise this past weekend.  I’m truly grateful for the time we had together.  I mean really together.  How often do people get to turn […]

Cait and I had been planning a trip to West Palm Beach for quite some time to visit her family and were both excited to see some real deal south Florida blue water.  Unfortunately, our flight from New Orleans to Atlanta was massively delayed, and fortunately our flight from Atlanta to West Palm was also […]
