Hello all and Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! We’re spending a few days down in San Diego visiting some family and hanging out at the beach, soaking up the sunshine on the last summer weekend. I helped my stepdaughter fix up her first off campus college room yesterday and snapped a few pics of the space, will share this week!
Meanwhile, it’s "best of the blogosphere" weekend again where Amanda and I scout out our favorite picks to share them here, enjoy these amazing spaces and clever projects!
