Our Christmas Stockings

Growing up I always had a special stocking that was handmade by someone in my family and had my baby picture on it.

Last Thursday I took some time to myself to just walk around the local outdoor mall.  I even dined at a hot spot for lunch at the breakfast bar, with someone else I didn’t know (gasp!). It was totally awkward but the french toast was worth it. Our local outdoor shopping center has a Paper… Continue reading I Heart Paper Source
