Packing up, moving on, new chapter!


If you know me or followed this blog for any amount of time, you probably know we’ve been trying to sell our home. It has been a grueling process. One that has brought more tears to my eyes than I’d like to recall and some low emotional days and lots of discouragement. Without many . . . → Read More: Packing up, moving on, new chapter!

Convenient, Versatile, Practical & Cute.

This little box makes me happy. Yep, I’m talking about a box.

Many people really like Nordstroms, Tiffany’s and Black and White , but clearly they have never been to the Container Store 😉 I prefer a closet of clear plastic boxes to a closet full of shoes…or wait, maybe I’ll take both.
