I have repeated this to myself and others many times over the last seven years, and while I know it to be true, I am frequently re-reminded of this incontrovertible fact.

    Tipton Oak Manor happenings
    I’m feeling excited about more and more warm days for us to enjoy. Soon it will be spring and we’ll start seeing flowers poking through the soil and trees budding out. For now in Missouri we’ll take the 70 degrees one day then 32 degrees the next until spring finally bursts forth and decides to stay. It’s actually a whole month away from being officially spring, so I’ll have to be patient.
