August Recap


Can you believe it’s September? I can’t. August flew by. We were in Colorado at our family cabin for the first part of August, so my blogging was a little slower. The family time was much needed and Colorado in the summer is just amazing. We did a few small hikes with the girls, saw lots of deer and chipmunks, ate plenty of ice cream and played games. There is no wifi, TV or cell service up at the cabin so it’s truly a time to relax, unplug and enjoy God’s creation. It’s the best!  However, I did get a few fun posts up and I thought I would start doing a recap every month. I’m sure there was something you missed, so be sure to check it out what I’ve been up to just in case!
