linky-giveaway-150x

I love Fridays! We don't have any special weekend plans, I'll probably measure all of the cushions in the camper to figure out how much fabric I need to recover them and watch a few movies with the kids!

"I guess the real fact of the matter is, we don’t know what tomorrow is going to bring and the only thing we really have is right now. So, don’t stay angry for too long and learn to forgive. Love your friends and family with all your heart. Have fun and live your life the way you want to live it. Most of all, don’t worry about people that don’t like you and enjoy the ones who do." ~Unknown
