It can. And what a ride it has been. Aside from the obvious - sharing my daily obsessions with you - I've come to enjoy a home in the … Continue reading just a thank you

In fact, it was Mom's almanac - references to sizes for myself and my four siblings, allergies, school info, … Continue reading mom’s almanac
