Summer brings on new experiences and the chance to declutter. During the winter months, we tend to hunker down and almost hibernate. Summer, on the other hand, offers a time to explore, change things up, and live a little more freely.

She’s been to camp before but never 6 hours away. This mama was definitely feeling out of her element, but I knew that she was in good hands and also knew that she needed to live and enjoy new experiences.
