It started out innocent enough.  The Friday after Thanksgiving my husband worked furiously on a 20 page paper he had due on Monday (he had just started it).

We live in a time where most of the people we know already have everything they need. In-laws, distant relatives and long time friends usually take the longest to shop for. What in the world could we possibly buy and them not end up hiding it in a closet or re-gifting it? I struggle with […]
