Elmwood, Nebraska #CaffeinatedRoadTrip

Someone, somewhere once said that you can't go home again.  Well, most of the time I agree with that.  Going home, after an extended time away is never the same.  You change, everyone else changes things move forward and are never the exact way you remember them.  But there is a moment on every trip home, where I turn the corner off of Hwy 34 onto Hwy 1 in Cass County and see this red barn with the painted quilt block and just for that moment everything is the same.  I could be 5 or 25 and the Continue reading
