Happy Birthday

From Instagram: Happy birthday to this guy! He works so hard at everything he does, loves his family fiercely, dreams big dreams, teaches our kids to wonder at the beauty around them, AND supports me in everything I do. We are lucky, indeed!

We spent four days this week at Wintergreen, a four-seasons resort in the Blue Ridge Mountains near the land where we’ll be building in the coming years. It was a simple, laid-back vacation that included curling up in the condo to watch movies, sitting on the balcony to listen to the live music being played during their summer music festival, and good eating (always with the eating!).

Yesterday we stopped and got a cake on our way home to celebrate Sean’s birthday, and I’ve decided that vacations that end on Friday are perfect because you get the whole weekend to recover from your vacation!

Have a great weekend!

P.S. This special Caldrea offer ends tomorrow. We came home to a stale house after being gone for four days with the windows shut and the a/c off during the high heat and humidity, and I loved wiping down my kitchen with the counter spray to freshen things up!
