Welcoming the Fae

  Just want to share a new project with you. This is our orange tree in the backyard. Found this sweet little door on Etsy from a shop called Woodbling. Can you see the mini glow globe to the left of the door? It’s solar. Soaks in the sun’s rays during the day and glows […]

There are no easy answers, but getting stumped at the grocery store was not something I expected. Let me explain, the place was packed after work on a weekday.
