Scenic Route

2013 Greetings to you all!

During the holiday season, our family traveled to New Orleans to cheer on the Florida Gators in the Sugar Bowl and for those who watched the game and the Gator loss, all you are probably thinking is “utter humiliation.” On our travels back home from New Orleans and to get over loss doldrum, …
