Well, friends, we've made it. Thank you so much for being with me on this blogging extravaganza of thirty whole days! And doesn't the world look different today? As I look out at our frosty garden, I can hardly believe that it's only been one month since my husband, Andrew, and our son were in … Continue reading Wordy Wednesday – #NaBloPoMo – we did it!
Never done a Gratituesday post before which is surprising, considering how grateful I am to so many people. I don't have enough photos to share here so apologies for that. Rest assured, they are extremely photogenic, all of my family and extended family and I'm very grateful to them. Even when we're arguing we love each … Continue reading Gratituesday
It's Day 28 of National Blog Posting Month and I'm running out of ideas. I'm running out of clean socks and pants. No matter how many I buy, no matter how many I wash, they disappear.
