Tackling Home Organization

I have something to confess. My husband is into roleplaying. He likes to have me dress up as a maid and then clean up around the house. That is a joke I’ve been doing for years. But it is true. My husband is the clean one in our house. He was an only child. His […]

Thanks for the Memories, 2016!

I can’t believe it’s the end of 2016. Some years I can’t wait to be over. Even though I know that starting a new year is symbolic more than anything. Like ending one year and starting a new year doesn’t mean that everything is magically better. Still, there are some years that I couldn’t wait […]
