Autumn Adventures 2019

What happened to Summer Adventures, you ask?  Heat.  Heat happened!  It’s just too hot here in Coastal Georgia to do much.  Also, since we made our big anniversary trip to England and Scotland in May/June, we stayed pretty close to home this summer.  Oh, and I had foot surgery.  (More on that in a minute.)

Here’s a great little video that gives a quick overview of Advent. As you saw in yesterday’s post, we got our Advent wreath set up and lit the first candle yesterday, the…
