Shane and I went on a little vacation to Iceland about a month ago and it was glorious! Iceland is SO fun, it’s really no wonder everyone is going there now. We had the best time.

Wilmington Beach!

Two weeks later we were off to Wilmington North Carolina for a wedding and we made a really nice long weekend of it, made even longer by some issues traveling back, but we soaked up enough sun to make it worth it!

This past weekend Laura and I went up to Minneapolis for Lily’s wedding and it was NOT beach weather. Not at all. But we had a great time in Minneapolis of course! I love it there.

SO! All this travel and Holla Knits stuff has lead to some quiet times over here. I’m back now and have tons to share so stay tuned!
