IMG_4078.JPG

I used to take and put together the cutest photo albums. I have personalized albums that I used to buy at Exposures - leather bound albums dated from 2003-2009. What happened in 2009? Nothing...

When I was in college, I remember walking into my local CVS and buying a children's coloring book and a box of Crayola crayons on a whim. I went back to my dorm room and sat on the floor and colored a picture of some silly cartoon. A friend jokingly made fun of me. It did look a little silly and it wasn't as exciting as I thought it would be. Cuz … [Read more...]

I had taken a quick stop in Ann Taylor and Banana Republic and I struck out there. But Friday Jon sent me on a mission to our local Sears to pick something up for him … [Read more...]
