I have had the same comforter for a few yeas now. One of the things I didn't like about it is was how thin it was. I had to use another comforter underneath that one to be warm at night. I don't know why comforters are being made to be thinner, but I don't enjoy … Continue reading Getting A New Comforter
I have a happy movie. It is a movie that I turn to when I'm feeling down and need something to pick me up.
