Marriage Confessions

Hi, I’m Katie. I enjoy long naps, burning baked goods, getting lost in Target, and Girl Scout cookie season. Don’t be fooled by my fancy-pants website. I’m not a marriage expert.

Sensory Boxes, Ages 2-5

A few weekends ago, we went to Atlanta for my nephew, Tillman’s, second birthday. I had been thinking about what to get Tillman for a few months.
