February Musings and Shopping Detox

February is the month when winter begins to feel perpetual. This time of year, hot, sandy summer days seem eons away and the trees look like they may never turn green again.

Shopping for First Day of Kindergarten Outfit!

I bought Evie the perfect dress for her first day of school. But Nick dressed her in it for her kindergarten orientation.
