  1. Moving is such a pain but I love how fun it is planning for something new. The excitement of imagining how great it all could be and your new life is so much fun. I always enjoy a new location. I need to get some of my excitement back for this house and finish some of those projects I wanted to do when I first moved in.

  2. You will have to make these with Olive when she's older. Amelia loves them and it's fun to watch the birds and squirrels eat them. http://www.fromashleytoawesome.com/2013/09/diy-bird-seed-feeders.html
