It’s not perfect but it’s SO much better…

So I’ve been knee deep cleaning out closets and prepping for fall… I’m having a sale this weekend with all the kiddos clothes and some of mine and jared’s as well.  As I was getting out our fall clothes it made me excited for the transition.  It inspired me to break out this transition piece… […]
