I’m sorry we’ve been MIA!

Springtime Fun 5

I’m sorry we’ve been MIA the past few weeks! My husband just found a new job so we’ve been spending as much time with him as possible, before he went back to work..

After a very loooooooong winter, it’s been glorious to spend some time together outdoors. Just check out a few of our photos from {Read More}
