“Life is made up of small pleasures. Happiness is made up of those tiny successes. The big ones come too infrequently.

This summer has started out pretty busy for me. I’ve had several projects going on around my home, including a kitchen renovation & between my hubby & myself, we’ve had three out-of-town trips in the span of just 2 1/2 weeks! This hasn’t left me with much time to hit many estate sales but last […]
