A Mountain Escape with Levi's | The Fresh Exchange

This time of year is always busy for us. But for the first time since getting married, Mike and I aren’t traveling home for the holidays. (Both of our families are coming to us!) And though we won’t be on the move, we’re already starting to feel the stress of the season.
