wow it’s hard to believe we’re half way through may already. summer is going to be here soon and it would be great to savor every minute this year instead of remembering it fondly once it’s flown by. for now i’ll settle for a quiet and peaceful spring sunday at home making little improvements. i’ve been surfing this morning and thought i’d just share a couple super easy of DIYs that popped up.
