Yale Real Living Touchscreen Deadbolt

I was recently asked if I’d like to try out a Yale Real Living Key Free Deadbolt for my door. I thought “wow! how high tech!” I said yes, because I hate having keys given out to everyone all over the place for when they pet sit for us (or a roommate that never returned […]

Books I Read Last Month {March}

Books Read March 2014

Bama + Ry Family Tree Necklace

I have been dying for a family necklace for a very long time. I’ve hinted and flat out asked my husband for one for a few years. I guess it’s a good thing he didn’t get the memo since we decided to add a fourth to our family. I was contacted by Bama + Ry […]
