It was a typical night in our household. We were scanning Google flights seeing where the cheapest flights to anywhere were in the coming months. This is what normal couples do on a Wednesday night, right? We were trying to decide where we wanted to go for the three-day weekend in November. One idea was… Continue reading Deciding to stay home — and being extremely happy about it!
Sometimes it's hard to balance getting tasks checked off of your to-do list and doing "fun things." Fun things for Bryce and I on the weekends usually involve being outdoors.
