This time of year is my favorite time to hit the trails. Once the weather starts to not get crazy hot and people start to clear out, that’s the best time to explore. Plus once fall hits, the colors start to change, and when you’re done you can get cider and donuts. Win, win. Even […]

I was just looking through Pinterest and planning 100 different vacations (typical!) and thought that how I keep all these ideas organized might be a helpful thing to share.
