The hubs took us all on a surprise jaunt to a place I have been dying to visit since we moved here.
He knows how much I love surprises, so it was a wonderful trip all around!
And I posted this last night, but it was very late so many of you probably didn't see it, so I want to post it again and give you all another chance to enter my mini… Continue
