    1. Hi Melissamevans! Definitely a great year for us! So far, the perpetual calendar has been great and easy to keep up with. it’s really cool to see what we did last year now that we’ve come full circle.

      Hey Monique! Thank you so much for reading and for leaving such kind and encouraging comments!! Hope the New Year is treating you well!

      Hi Ashley! That art has made such a difference in the feel of our bedroom. It’s much more personal and modernizes the traditional aspects.
