100 Days of RV Life

2023 Faith, Family and Freedom

I’ll save you the new year resolution post. Each year I am tempted to do ALL THE THINGS. You know, the diet, the workout and every other healthy habit I can think of to start my year off with a bang. I’ve realized I am just setting myself up for disappointment and really there are…
