One of the projects Dave and I tackled over Christmas break was transforming our boring office closet into a fun playhouse for Nora.

My Christmas Gift to Myself

I don’t know about you, but I like to give myself a Christmas and birthday gift 🙂 This year, the gift I gave myself was a super comfy and soft Michigan Home t-shirt from the Home. T Company.

They have many other states available, and a portion of each sale helps support research for Multiple Sclerosis. Wouldn’t these also make a fun graduation gift?
