The Captain and I don’t do much in the way of material things for holidays (including birthdays)…we stopped doing cards and flowers and trinkets before the kids were even born.

What about Saturdays and Sundays? Do bloggers take the weekend off? I love the idea of Wordless Wednesday, because it is a way I… Read More Five Minute Friday: The First
