A note from Michelle: 

If you haven’t washed your hair since Tuesday and dry shampoo is your best friend, you might find a connection here. If your couch is covered in several loads of laundry and you can’t find two socks that match, and if there are petrified French fries in your back seat, I think we could be best friends.

It’s a little easier now that my children have left the nest, but there was a time when my minivan had dried up milk under the carseats, and my living room floor was a minefield of Lego pieces.

Right now, there is dust on my television screen and 100 messages in my inbox, but I’m happy to kick back with an iced latte and a good book, rather than work on either of those problems. And I would much rather be chalk-painting a yard-sale dresser than scrubbing my kitchen floor!

I hope you’ll connect here and tell your friends to stop by too. Together we can live life, repurposed!
