I’d been thinking about it for months but Tricia’s blog post about her family’s own experience gave me the needed… Continue reading Our (mostly) Toy-less household!
Today is going to be insanely busy for me. We’re in the midst of preparing for a trip to meet with some Eye Doctors to try to fix my husbands genetic eye disease.

For whatever reason,… Continue reading In the sewing room…
Sorry I’ve been absent so long but life has thrown us a curveball lately. My husband and I came down with some kind of cold/flu the end of November right after Thanksgiving. It’s been an up and down rollercoaster ride of starting to feel better, getting sick again, feeling better, another relapse and so on. At this point… Continue reading Mini update….
