30 In Life

All our bags are packed…

I imagine if it’s crisp down here on the Gulf Coast that you too are enjoying a change of seasons where you are! We have thoroughly enjoyed our little “getaway” and we reluctantly are packing the car.

I can’t wait to give a full report, in the meantime, here are a handful of highlights of our time here…

    Looks like a fun trip! I’m wondering if you were somewhere near my neck of the woods (Pensacola). Vacations ending are the worst…we call it PFS (Post Fun Syndrome).

    Your photos are just gorgeous. I love how the Morgan’s pink outfit works with the pink hues of the clouds in the background.
