Well, we did not see this coming. Actually, we did it coming, but wow! 2015 just snuck up on us. As you might imagine, the days between Thanksgiving and New Years are a bit of a blur. Between Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, Giving Tuesday (still haven’t gotten that one down), and then Holiday Shopping madness, we woke up on New Years Day only to realize it was time to do our yearly inventory!
But here’s the good news: then we took a vacation!
True story. We packed our bags and headed to the Azores off the coast of Portugal for a week. We’ll have some pictures soon.
While climbing volcanic mountains on vacations, we made some resolutions for 2015. Here’s to sticking to writing more blogs – one of the many resolutions we made!

I must warn you – this is just Part 1… Part 1 of many.
Not too long ago, we came back from a whirlwind trip in the Southwest. Our original plan was to spend a week in Tucson, Arizona for the annual Handcrafted Soap & Cosmetics Guild conference. Knowing my parents love for travel and adventure, we invited them. Shortly after inviting my parents, we realized that Matt’s mom would be officially retired, so we invited Matt’s parents, Ron & Robin, along. They decided they didn’t want to go to Tucson and hang out while we were at a conference, but suggested hanging out in Las Vegas the week before the conference!
And oh, while we’re at it… we might as well go to the Grand Canyon… it’s, like, right there!
What was supposed to be a quick conference trip for Matt and me ended up being a 2 week family vacation in the desert southwest. It was AWESOME. We’re very lucky we like our respective in-laws so much and even luckier they like each other! The four “grown-ups” (and I use that term very loosely) even went to see Jersey Boys together while in Las Vegas!
We’ll be sharing a post about each destination with recommendations/reviews – just in case you decide to head that way. Put us on your reader app, because we’ve got nothing but goodness for you here!
