This + That

Holler friends! Happy spring! We have six weeks left of our school year and I confess, I’m counting down the days. We have so much fun coming this summer and I’m ready for the SUNSHINE. We’ve got some major house projects in the works too. I know, I know … the never-ending story around here. […]

Free Tree Tracker For the 150 Hours Outside Project

I recently stumbled upon a fabulous “challenge” of sorts on Instagram — the 150 Hours  Outside Project.

10K Like Whoa!
