abacus

While growing up my sisters and I would ask my parents to tell us stories of how they met and fell in love. One that often came up was when my dad broke my moms abacus necklace in high school. Luckily he was a big science geek and quickly repaired the necklace using his awesome soldering skills.

thrifting

Meet my latest finds :)

The frame is originally from Target. I'm pretty sure that the previous owner never even used it ... what luck!

Guess who decided to take an early nap today :)

No matter how exhausted, my little guy usually fights nap time. Today I was shocked when he announced that he was going to take a nap and then tucked himself in bed ... two hours early.
