My mom friend, DesignTrackMind, has some exciting news! She is the Interior Designer for the new This Old House project that is underway in my neck of the woods (Auburndale, MA).
The last hurrah was picking up money with our butts. First of all, a $10 bill is not enough. Secondly, the money needs to be crisp! And lastly, we all can do it. Yes, ladies who lunch can pick up money with our butts! An interesting and productive day, to say the least.
