A few weeks ago, Ryan, Hunter and I shared one of my favorite days in a long time.

We were out of the house, with coffees and donuts in hand, by 8:30am.

It’s been years since I had been back, and it was such a special experience for me showing Ryan the house were I spent my childhood summers, our lake, the cute town, where we went to get ice cream. Hunter also had a blast running through leaves and taking in some mountain air.

I think I’m ready to go back for another visit!
