Hi friends and happy New Year! I am back home after an unplugged weekend with Will in the Blue Ridge Mountains. Getting back into my groove this week has taken extra time. Is it just me!? I have been reflecting on all the changes I have encountered in the past year. While I look to the year ahead, I thought I would first share with you the ten most popular blog posts of 2017.
First, here’s a little peek of our weekend adventures. We hiked more than 11 miles through snow in 17 degree weather. This may sound terrible for some of you, but we had an absolute blast. It warmed my soul (the hot tub helped with that too!) and gave me the fresh, quiet air that I was craving.
Now, here are the….
