I Feel Like 17

My new favorite song is “Brand New“ by Ben Rector. It’s a good feeling song that makes my heart and soul smile.

Just Chill

Experiencing autumn in the Ozark Mountains is an experience like no other. Every year these mountains make the list of places to see in the fall. The view in late October is simply breathtaking.
