Eric and I hiked up a hill near our home and we were able to watch a couple firework shows from our spot on the hill. Since it was dark we didn’t discover the ant hill we put the tripod on top of until I felt them crawling on my foot! Yikes! I blame Eric. […]
My beautiful candle from Archipelago! I won it from JillianHarris.com last month and was delightfully surprised to get it in the mail recently. It seriously smells amazing! They even wrote me a note! Talk about great customer service!
