Running Blonde…

29 Sep I will.

This is primarily a running blog, I know, so I'm sticking with that. Because there's nothing bigger. Bear with me. I've been quiet this week, I know. Big things happening and a lot to process. John's dad passed away last Sunday - very suddenly and unexpectedly. He was strong...
