Kadima and Shasta at our recent family photo session! Quick life update here! Once again, I’ve fallen behind writing like I’ve hope to one day do. But, I’m going to embrace that and enjoy the times I do get time to sit down and type. […]
This Sukkot season I had the pleasure of attending a clinic taught by Pippa Callanan. Going into the clinic, I had little knowledge of who Pippa was. I didn’t know where she was from, her background, even what she looked like.
