The blind leading the blind.

Number one reason to write today: tell the world how much I love my new blinds. I do. I loves them. This is a rental house. With a rental house comes rental window dressing.

It’s been 3 weeks now since I completed my 365 project. I miss the challenge and I don’t. On one hand, it was nice to have that extra pressure to make sure we did something more than just lounge around in pajamas (I mean, we did that a ton even when I was doing the […]
