Studio Apartment

If you follow me on instagram and saw my stories you probably know I’m in Chicago.  I’m so happy to be back.  I love our new house but I was super homesick.  I’m not home just to visit though.

Unfortunately rosacea never goes away.…

Catalog Shopping Wish List

I don’t get a ton of catalogs anymore but the one’s I do I usually throw in my car and flip through them when I’m out and about and waiting around for whatever it is I’m waiting for. With the holidays coming it seems like I’ve gotten more than I usually do.  Catalog shopping especially around the holidays takes me back to when I was a little girl.  Don’t you totally remember going through the catalog wishing and circling everything…
