Maybe this is my attempt at setting myself up or giving myself a little space, but I really want to be fully present over the next couple weeks while I spend some quality time with my folks. Oh sure I’ll be thinking (do I ever really stop?) I’m might even do a little crafting. Maybe… Read More going unplugged
The last couple years (2013, 2012) I’ve done a little “Favorite Things” blog. You know new things I’ve discovered in the year or my must-haves and go tos!
