I don’t like putting things on the front of the refridgerator. I think that’s because my mom never did/does either and just like her, I like things to generally be as uncluttered as possible. However, as of late, I’ve been finding myself really wanting a place in the kitchen to put notes, cards, coupons, etc. We don’t have the need for an official “family command center” or anything. (For things like that, Greg and I sync our calendars regularly and share…

In honor of Tax Day, I’m going to delve into the most exciting thing ever… filing! I don’t know if you caught that, but that was supposed to come across as sarcastic. Though, I do actually think it’s kind of fun. I’m weird like that. My first “job” when I was about 14 was filing at my grandpa’s office. I say “job” because I’m pretty sure it only lasted a month or so and then I was off to summer…
