Friday Favorites–DIY Weddings

One year ago we were deep, and I mean DEEP, in the final stages of my daughter and son-in-law’s wedding plans.  We were hoping the weather was going to continue to cooperate and that we hadn’t forgotten anything important.  I expected us all to be in a state of chaos and insanity at that point,…

Welcome to this week’s Talented Tuesday!  I’m actually writing this from a hotel room in beautiful Seattle, Washington.  I really love being my own boss, because it allows me to tag along on my husband’s business trips, and still get my own work done!  As you’re reading this, I’m probably on my third or fourth…
