Then one summer I got really bored and started collaging on my bedroom’s closet doors. I didn’t enjoy a lot of things about my […]Read More This new thing I’m trying
A little over a year ago my nephew decided to be baptized. At that time I had wanted to acknowledge this big decision he was making but I get uncomfortable trying to say touchy-feely stuff to people and I hate writing notes in cards, so Todd and I opted to get him the Narnia books […]Read More You Make Beautiful Things
