Sunday thoughts | free printable

A great quote to remind us to stop being so critical of each other |print via lollyjane.com

If you are a football fan or Arizona native, you couldn’t have missed the uproar this week with one of our high school athletes turned college football star turned Phoenix Cardinals player.

Peach Tart

Hi guys,it’s Aimee from Like Mother Like Daughter here. A couple years ago we planted a peach tree in our yard.
