I have already decorated our house with all things fall…earlier than I ever have before. I think it’s an attempt to WILL cooler weather to arrive. I am hopeful that, by the time you receive this…

0 Supplies & Demands

I am a junkie. I admit it. This time of year, I find myself getting giddy as I walk through office supply stores or department stores and see school supplies! I am addicted.
