I remember seeing a lot more honey bees growing up as a kid. Maybe that's because I spent a lot more time outside but I have noticed that I just don't see the large amounts of bees like I used to.

Do you remember these lovely heart shaped candies in the little boxes with the peek-a-boo window? I do and I still have to get a box every year. Continue Reading
I remember going for walks with my Papa and there was a tree we passed that had old carvings in it. It was an beautiful birch tree that had a smooth silvery bark and had stood there for ages. The letters were near impossible to read because...Continue Reading
