Long time, no write! Well, here I am…Portland, Oregon! I know I didn’t mention it before, but I am currently living in the Pacific Northwest. Someone mentioned it to Alexa and I and after laughing it off for a bit we figured, “why not??” As much as I love Nashville, it was time to see … More Road trip day 1 – Indianapolis, IN to St. Louis, MO
