Inspired by this project over at Our Little Apartment (that is her trunk as she carts off a bunch of stuff from her house), I am going to spend eight weeks starting a week from today (I'm leaving for five days today, so starting now would not make much sense, although sometimes I feel like I… Continue reading Simplicity Sunday #1 – Purge, purge, purge
Tonight's Social Saturday post has me experiencing something new - Roller Derby! I have known about our local Roller Derby for a while now, but have not got around to going. My mother's club had this as a social, but only me and one other mother ended up going. Luckily it was a mother who… Continue reading Social Saturdays #1 – Roller Derby
