This year has passed me by so quickly I’m still having trouble getting my […] Read more…

Vacuum Decor?

One day I would love to know what it feels like to put my vacuum away. Vacuums should be designed to look like a decor accessory, because mine is always out…and yet, my floors never stay clean for longer than a few hours a day. I’m serious, I rotate the vacuum between rooms, one day […] Read more…
