The Big Boo Cast, Episode 285

On this episode Melanie does some deep reflection on all of last year’s preparations for Caroline’s freshman dorm room, and she does this because she started the process of moving Caroline out of her dorm room this past weekend. Suffice it to say: LESSONS WERE LEARNED.¬†

We also talk about the ramp up to Alex’s high school graduation weekend (when I was editing I wondered if I should use “Sunrise, Sunset” as background music), my recent accomplishments with our built-ins, and Melanie’s Five Favorites.

Y’all enjoy!

  1. Gretchen says:

    Can you check the link for the black out curtains? Thank you so much!

  2. Sophie, I just read your latest newsletter and loved it. I particularly love that you refer to your sister as “sister”. Reminds me so much of the Berenstain Bears books my kids loved so many years ago. Random thought I know, but just wanted to thank you for the walk down memory lane with that term of endearment.
