Trice and I had an amazing vision retreat this year. We found this quaint little cabin in the middle of the woods. Literally. Like we had to park our car and drive a golf cart to get to the cabin.

Needless to say, our retreat wasn't as romantic or organized as previous retreats, but we enjoyed hanging with our peanut and really just dreaming together for our family.Read More

I know I know. I seem outgoing and bubbly - and that is true to a certain degree. But ever since I could remember, I have always needed me time.Read More
