One great thing about where we live is that we are 2 hours from the beach and 2 hours from the mountains. It was such a joy to get up to the cooler air and beautiful scenery. Also – we are enjoying this season of life with our children being older as it makes trips like these a bit more doable. I will always hold a special place in my heart for the mountains since it is where I spent my childhood. What a refreshing get-away.
