I must admit that I am extra this month. I mean EXTRA EXTRA as in, read all about it, and be all about it. I love to celebrate all month long because I’m just grateful to be here. I’m grateful that you’re here, too!

The Shopping List

Back in my day, trapper keepers, composition notebooks, and cute pens were all the rage.
