Less is More

I was one of those naive moms-to-be who swore up and down that my tasteful adult abode would never become plastic toy central. “The baby stuff will stay in the baby’s room,” I insisted. Ha. Hahahahahaha. I’ve finally accepted that I can’t...

Getting Out of Dodge

Thanks to the lovely interweb, it’s easier than ever to inform the world about a change of address. But if you’re like me, you’d rather do the classy thing and kick it old school with the snail mail. That’s exactly what I’m going to do to...
