*Wear* have I been?!?
Coming up with a punny title, that’s where 😁 I’m writing about clothing shopping today – not a topic I usually pay much attention to, but bear with me, the story ends with peace, clarity, and comfy pants. My relationship with clothing is complicated. My size changes year to year, I had limits on howContinue reading “*Wear* have I been?!?”

For me the best part is the window it opens into people’s quirky lives. I have a folder filledContinue reading “The Joy of Quirky Kijiji”
