I should have done this three years ago.
Restoration Hardware We have three boys. The oldest will be 15 this year and my other two are 12 and 11. Years ago I bought them all matching beds, two dressers and some book shelves for their rooms. We never got further than that. When I wrote out my home goals for 2011 I included […]
Have I told you that I automatically wake up at 5am almost every morning? No alarm? Actually, that was before Tanzania. Since Tanzania it’s been 4:30. It started January 1st. NO LIE. Is that odd? Do you think Someone is trying to tell me something? I do my best writing while the sun is rising […]
