I need to sit down and send some thank you cards this week. This post has me excited about doing just that! Though I’m so behind around here – I actually lost my mind (don’t ask, it’s a common occurrence) and got ahead on a couple of things so I had time to put this post together! LOL! Recently, I had a fun little crafter-noon and

Truly, I am so grateful and looking forward to a four day weekend (says the girl that hasn’t had a vacay in years – literally). Besides that, we break out the pretty plates, real napkins, crystal
