anniversary gifts for couples Cross-Stitch Quote of the Day customized gifts for mom

Jaime and I have been having some fun turning our favorite quotes from scholars, writers, celebritiesanniversary gifts for couples, our readers, our friends and even ourselves, into little cross-stitch “;patterns.”; We will be sharing them with you over the next few weeks.

For today I picked a quote from Jessica, one of our favorite Prudent Mamas. I can’;t remember when and why she said this but it amused me so much that I made a note of it. Now it is a cross-stitch pattern that we can all enjoy. Thanks for the laughs Jessica! You help make our day so fun.
