Monday, November 05, 2018      31 comments

We went for a long walk in the woods yesterday to a favourite place of Charlie's. Because it's been months since he could comfortably get into the car or enjoy it, we haven't been there for a while. It hadn't seemed right to go without him. ... Read more

Sunday, November 04, 2018      32 comments
