Our First Time in the Snow

We always have to explain to people who don’t live in the southwest that since we live in the desert, the snow never comes to us. We have to go TO the snow.

Our Spanish Moss and Driftwood Beach Portraits

This month, we got to start the new year with a little retreat with two of our most cherished friends on St. Simons Island, Georgia. We already blogged all about our trip: the marathons of Settlers of Catan, the picnic on the beach, golf carting around the island, late night conversations in our PJs (you can catch up here!) and we already blogged the portraits we snagged …
