3 Tips on Connecting and Reconnecting

I just got home from a 10-day rafting trip in the Grand Canyon with my husband. We were gone from work, cell phones, our kids and everything for 10 days! To say it was great is an understatement. Before we left, my husband and I joked about reconnecting on the trip. I thought, aren’t we […]
