  • A Christmas to remember

    I was home sick last Wednesday and Thursday with the stomach bug that has apparently been going around the county.

    Being home sick gave me a lot of free time to think about things I normally wouldn’t have time to think about. My mind kept going back to all the Christmas festivities that I was a part of this year. 2016 has been a great year for me as I got engaged to my fiancée Danielle Sexton and 2017 will be even better as we are getting married.
