The next immediate feeling - heartbroken. Thi…

Beach girls

This was supposed to be published weeks ago, so I'm not sure what happened there. But alas here it is...
It's been a super busy summer and last couple weeks. I have one hundred things to share, but for now here are some pics from our recent girls trip to Florida!
