i started this blog for testing purposes back in 2006 when i worked at yahoo! small business, which makes me laugh quite hard to think about. i keep trying or thinking that i’ll move over to instagram, but i just haven’t been able to get into it and there’s something so great about blogs and no one reading them and just plugging away about the simple joys and drags of life. you can email me at nicki AT bookbinderlocal455.com (i think, i should check on this).
