After Christmas we moved my grandpa out of his home of 64 years. Though I can’t imagine only visiting through memories and photos, that time has come. How I’d love to freeze time and keep him there forever.

micanopy episcopal church

micanopy church steeple and oaksI’m so glad we got off I-75 in Micanopy. It’s a tiny town packed with beautiful historic buildings and towering live oaks. We didn’t have much time to spare for photos but  this pretty Episcopal church with a red door called my name.
