    It’s so lovely! I had heard so much about the Container Store, that when I finally had a chance to check on out, I was… disappointed. My cheapskate heart couldn’t imagine spending all that $$ on storage. I think it’s because my mom would (and still does) buy an over abundance of Rubbermaid stuff each time she went to the store. No joke! I’ve spent most of my life rolling my eyes over how much she’s spent on plastic boxes. But when my parents moved to Utah and she donated a bunch of her cast offs to me, I began to understand the madness. Being able to see everything at a glance? To have the mess contained in perfectly identical boxes? Bliss.

    Yeesh, sorry for the novel/ story telling! :)

      I love the novel! I’ve always been enamored at having everything so uniformly put away. Everything having a place. We never had a container store growing up and we always had such a wide variety of containers that never seemed to match or hold everything. It’s awesome to find a place that feeds into that OCD fantasy of mine!

    We Bought A Photobooth


    It’s like one of those things that you say that elicits a cocked head and a, “What?”. Like we bought a zoo or something. Except infinitely sillier and minus the animal poop. In October of ...

      That’s awesome, Melissa! Congratulations on another business endeavor.

      Would love to see a pulled-back photo of the booth in action.

      This sounds fun!

      And your family pic is great. Just commenting on this, because I know it’s a compliment my husband loves, but Chris is looking fit – his face is way chiseled.

    I’ve been dying to get my hands on some plaid lately. It’s been huge since last year and I’ve loved the come-back. I’m not sure it ever really went out of style, but I’m glad ...
