Friday’s Favorites: My Top 5 Favorite Phone Apps

Hello all! So it's true, today isn't Friday. But Sunday's Favorites didn't have the same ring. I meant to get ahead of things and write this much earlier... but then lazy nights on the couch got in the way. My apologies. So I am a big fan of technology. I think there is so much … Continue reading Friday’s Favorites: My Top 5 Favorite Phone Apps

Panthertown Valley

Panthertown Valley has to be one of the most unique places in North Carolina.
