Finally, another adventure! This one I was really excited about. I was going down for the weekend to pre-celebrate my birthday with my boyfriend. He was working down in the Bay Area, so I made the trek on a Friday to go see him. We didn’t know what we were going to do that weekend, so it made me even more excited.

Iowa is My Friend – 7.3.14 – Shelby, IA

But I did get to explore the northern part of Arkansas with his sister. It was a great bonding experience! Continue reading
