Thank you so much, Kate!

  1. You’ve inspired me, it’s time for a road trip for me and the Mr. We haven’t been out since our trip to Greenville WV to buy some new bulls. We always have such a good time and take the forestry roads when we can. Hopefully, sometime next week and I’ll have to plan ahead. Your photos, as usual, are beautiful!!
