We've spent most of January living in a tent. Far enough away from home to feel refreshing, close enough to feel pretty darn comfortable. We are home again now, time to prep for the new year. But before we forget...

We didn't set out to stay so long, in fact we did return home for a bit, before packing up again. Sleeping snuggled under twinkling lights, little people wrapped up in their Christmas sleeping bags. Waking to misty mornings (and more recently - baking sun). Cups of tea out of enamel mugs. Bows and arrows and so many sweet games under the trees. There are plenty of memories to take home from our camping stay-cation.
