That Sunday (3/6/16) started out innocently enough. As we get closer to the Easter season, a tradition held by many Western New Yorkers is the annual trip to the Broadway Market, one of America’s longest running public markets (if not the longest). I had only gone a couple times before RB and I started dating. Since my family is not… Continue reading An Unexpected Day, or BB’s First Road Trip (2016)

Part of what I love about old homes are… Continue reading Con-Signing My Life Away, Part 1
