Our Dream… And Plan


Early last summer (2016), a dream was hatched. It started while driving back from a camping trip with some amazing friends. Driving back home in our Westie, we had one of those conversations, that starts something like this, “Wouldn’t it be so cool, if…?” And a dream was birthed… Throughout that summer as we got
