The housemates and I went camping last weekend. I haven’t camped much in my life but I think that may change – at least a little. I had such a fun time.

My life has been fairly interesting and busy lately. Two weeks ago I went to Grand Lake on a family vacation. I loved getting to spend time with my family – two of my cousins even came.

We hiked along the Flatirons, something I wanted to do, and spent a couple hours looking at … More Hiking, tea, and Lydia
