Almost heaven, West Virginia...Russ and I are both Mountaineers at heart, and this weekend we spent some time in the good 'ol mountain state, hiking and chasing hot air balloons. When we were in college, one of our favorite fall traditions was the Mountaineer Balloon Festival. Sadly, the festival hasn't been put on for a number … Continue reading Wild & Wonderful Weekend
My favorite flower...it's always so happy. Good inspiration for today. Be colorful. Be bold. Have fun. Smile. Get some sunshine (but wear sunblock). Live. Bloom.

We have sunflowers! So excited that they are finally blooming!

It seemed like … Continue reading Summer Vacation 2015: Destin, Florida
