We Moved!

We made it to Washington! The weeks leading up to the Road Trip were busier than we anticipated, as all moves have a tendency to be.  With 30+ hours of driving and one car load of belongings, bunnies and gerbils, we made it safely to our destination.  The scenery was beautiful, transitioning from flat farmland… Continue reading We Moved!

2016 Planner Setup

I love planners.  I’ve used one ever since they started giving one away at the beginning of each school year starting in middle school.  For an organizational person like me, it was so much fun to color-code and make sure appointments were not forgotten.
