A Great Moment in Time…

I took great care to move around Feather and… Read more »

Indigo’s Grand Adventures | Cafe Madrid

So, our first night in Dallas we went to this Spanish Tapas restaurant [hope you know what that means, because I don’t] called Cafe Madrid.  It was hot, but there was a nice breeze and I was really surprised because there were other people sitting outside with us…I didn’t expect that…For some reason, I’m not… Read more »
