New Use for a Cupcake Stand…

Day 26 – Month of Thankfulness

Today, I am thankful for seasons. While we don’t truly experience them as far as the weather goes, the holidays and the events of life keep us in check, reminding us that the leaves really are turning colors somewhere and the snow will begin falling soon, again, somewhere else. Now,…
