A New Home

Time for a little catch-up! If you follow me on Instagram you know our family bought a house in Idaho. If you don’t, let me tell you what is going on! The last time I left you, we sold our house in California and moved in with my in-laws (which is also in California) to…

Sketches of my Treasures
