    Magpie Adventures: Meadow Hot Springs

    Last week we headed to a family reunion outside of Oceanside, California. To break up the day long drive, we took a detour to some hot springs in central Utah to soak our feet and get the wiggles out. I thought I’d share our adventure in case other families out there would like to stop! […]

    March is kicking my fanny. It’s been cold and windy with morning dustings of snow and I am in desperate need of spring and a little adventure.
