By on January 10, 2017 in House and Home, Ministry with 3 Comments

My Anthropologie apron and I have been through a lot together.  Its charred yellow polka dot fabric, singed teal ruffle, and frayed fuchsia waist ties tell stories of my many battles with macaroons, meringue pie, and Crock-Pot Mac ‘n cheese.  And while I should probably retire the ratty looking thing, I cannot bring myself to […]
