It all begins one beautiful April 11th, 2016 morning

8:30 a.m. we packed the truck and took off for Mia Ekenbarger’s Excellent Adventure

My Birthday Gift from Papa and Bahee was a trip to the American Girl Store in Charlotte, NC. We had to wait awhile to go so I could recoup after my scoleosis surgery. Dr. Hey did a great job, I’m surprised it’s been under 3 weeks and I feel awesome!
