the most important thing

There are a lot of important parts of my life. I like to think that I live a very full, wonderful life with lots of friends, family, and general busy-ness.

I’m by no means a fashionista… although, sometimes, very rarely, I try to think I am. This week, I am on a tighter budget (due to overspending and under-budgeting last week…), so I have been daydreaming about shopping… and my favorite stores. Last night, Mr. Wonderful and I went to the Bruno Mars concert and … Continue reading
