Decorate My Life

Hey guys.  I’m attempting to come back to the blogging world in 2015.  It’s been five months since I’ve blogged, and I’ve missed you guys in my little corner of the internet!  Thank you for your sweet emails and comments during that time.  It’s really as simple as this: When school started back up, I […]
