Honestly, as I am writing at this point, I am starting to confuse all my days!! We did so much in such a short amount of time - all of which I was unquestionably, seriously, extremely, beyond excited about - that all the memories have sort of blurred together in mind as a series of hiking, laughing, smiling, walking, kayaking, laughing, laughing, drinking, smiling, zodiac-ing, smiling, drinking, eating, eating, laughing, hiking, yada yada yada and some solid deep sleeping.Read More
