It’s Friday – hurrah! Re-entry into regular life after spring break is always tough, and it makes for a long week. Tammy is back from the Dominican Republic, and me? Well, I stayed here – but I did manage to have a little fun during our week off of school. And we’re both back with our noses to the grindstone, getting ready for our next …

I can’t even begin to tell you how long I’ve been waiting to share this post. Honestly, I’ve been waiting since long before I even had a blog. You see, I had this kitchen table (click here for the back story). And I’ve been wanting a new one for what felt like forever. I love to entertain, and ours just wasn’t big enough. But I had …
