Our out-of-town trips have been very limited since moving to New York (no car), and I’ve never been to Philly before, so I’m super psyched! I’ll be sure to share pictures next week.
My other exciting plan for the weekend involves cleaning. Somehow, glitter seems to have worked it’s way into every surface and onto human in my home. #CraftingHazard
