Join Kim & Julie on Nov. 18th
I can't believe October is almost over! I have loved spending weekends outdoors with my family at pumpkin patches and corn mazes and look forward to the fun activities that November and December bring. While I have started planning some exciting trips and activities, I have also begun to reflect on what I've accomplished this year and what I want to do in 2020.

Kim and I are here for it. Are you?
