Your “eeees” resound throughout the farm, and I smile to know how excited you are to show off your horseback riding prowess, how thrilled you are that your parents and brother and grandmas are here to watch you revel in your favorite pastime.

Posted on

I wasn’t planning on taking the easy way out. I must’ve looked at 2,003 photos until I came across one that made me pause. It’s the one photo that makes me wonder what this blog stands for today. Before that one, I’d stumbled on a photo of Tucker as a toddler, twirling his hair. It […]
