We've put in a lot of extra hours this week so that we could enjoy this Memorial Day weekend with our family!
We made it! We had gotten a last minute phone call and we were in at the Maryland Sheep and Wool Festival. We had an amazing team who dropped everything, helped pack, traveled with us there, and helped us all weekend! Couldn't have done it without our friends! Thank you all for supporting our booth and stopping by to say hi! It was a wonderful weekend and we're already looking forward to next year.
