simple life ~~ happy spring!

Simple life indeed.  My apologies for not posting anything lately but I am afraid there has been nothing to post about.  If I just randomly list things that have happened in March it would look like this: Read (a lot).

vintage home chic ~~ small changes with big rewards

For the last time–I hope. […]
