This weekend has been a great reminder of how important having down time at your home can be. We usually just don’t have any. Time is filled with leaving again, or grinding out a project here or there. It’s been different this weekend.

It was everything that a weekend should be, and a great reminder of why we work and hustle and seek out and procure…
