A Trip Down South…and Back

November 8th, 2012 by farmgirls 10

  We tend to be procrastinators…especially when it comes to getting ready for a big trip.  It’s not that we weren’t excited to go, we just weren’t excited to pack, especially when you’re going to need your toothbrush, your pillow, and some of your clothes before you actually leave.    So we kept adding to […]
