Snack Time

So you decided to spend the weekend doing a little spring cleaning and while straightening out your closet, stumble upon a shoebox filled with old photographs. Two hours later, you’re still pawing through that box and wonder where the time got off to. “I can’t believe we used to dress like that!” turns into “I should really do something with all these photos…” But how many of us ever really do anything with them? Show of hands?
