    So excited for this weekend! With the scheduled packing up and moving of apartments on Friday, I am going to need an excuse to escape the craziness!! Checking out craft ideas, getting some great, locally-made new home items, and making a terrarium, so that we’ll at least have one living plant in the new place that I should be unable to kill with my “black thumb”, and just being among amazingly talented artisans will be a welcome respite! Not to mention, I may have to pick up some yummy treats to thank my bf for all his heavy lifting! The only thing that could make it better would be winning a weekend pass! Thanks!
