A few short weeks ago, my boys’ bathroom was full of color, energy, and lots and lots of letters. It took me awhile to gather all those letters and frames. The Anthropologie sale room, the Walter Anderson Museum of Art, craft … Continue reading
Whew! As this busy summer winds down and school ramps up, I find myself needing some down time in the late afternoon to recharge for my evening routine. It’s been pretty obvious that the rest of my family needs some time to regroup … Continue reading
