Snow Days

Mil and Mom in the snow

We got loads of ice (and a little snow) last Wednesday and Thursday.  Enough that I got 2 days of working from home with my tiny human in tow.  Fortunately for me, the hubs was also off on Thursday, so he was able to hang out with Mil during parts of the day, allowing me…

They have a great simple design, and because each pair is in a different metal, they really do go with everything. Makeup Wearing a mask all the…

Book Journaling

I’m back in the office now, but I spent most of my time at home during the quarantine hanging out with Mil and journaling. I started myself a book journal, and made spreads for each of the books I’ve read so far this year. It was nice to get my thoughts about the books I’ve…
