2. Yesterday my husband came in with a smoothie that he told me he created. He told me I would like it. He told me it was healthy. And when I asked him what was in it? He proudly told me with a smile.
Chocolate and broccoli.
No. Just no.
3. Our Christmas Crafts have started over in the FREE Christmas group. This past week we made a tree with vintage jewelry and a coastal Christmas wreath. If you haven’t joined us yet, I wanted to invite you over to the group. You can request an invite here.

And do any of y’all know the Novogratz’s? I have followed them since they used to have a show on television. They are some of the most creative, think outside the box designers I have ever met and they fascinate me.
