Summer Update

Do you guys miss the old hey-days of blogging? I do. I felt inspired to write a newsy life update today. I love going back and reading old posts like these. (I actually have about eight year’s worth now!) A lot of this is lengthy notes from Baby Land, where I know I will lose […] Read more…
