Home Away From Home

Home Away From Home

This week I’m at one of my favorite places in the world. Mapleridge Ranch is located in the Southern Tier of New York. It’s a summer camp located on over 200 acres and even in the summer the weather is just right! Since our friends run the camp, my husband gets asked to be a speaker once a summer usually. We get to stay in the guest house and the schedule is super relaxed. It feels like home away from home.

The guest house is cozy and warm, the coffee is serve yourself anytime, and naps are always supported! It is the essence of hospitality!
