Vacation

It's been awfully quiet on the blog and for good reason - I've been on vacation!

I took a road trip from Torrington to the west coast and have been touring my home towns for the last two weeks in the Pacific Northwest.

Posts are to follow, but in the mean time here is a sneak peek at the life I've been living these last few weeks. Want to see more? Follow me on Instagram!
