That Time a Stranger Insulted My Dog {Giveaway}

September 26, 2016

It’s prime leaf peeping season and since the color dies so quickly here thanks to the elevation, Will and I try our best to maximize quality time with the yellow-leaved beauties.

August 30, 2016

In the spirit of full disclosure, I may as well tell you *all* the exciting things going on lately!
