A Soft Place To Land

An alternate title to this post could be "Birthday Shopping Round I." For my birthday this year my mom was asking what she could get for me and I was at a loss for something specific I wanted. "I really would just like a Marshalls gift card, really" I told her. And whaddaya know, that's exactly what she gave me, and it was perfect. And what's even better is that Marshalls, TJ Maxx, and HomeGoods are all interchangeable when it comes to gift cards and even returns (I gave them a call before heading over). So off to HomeGoods I was, eager to find something that would catch my eye since I didn't really have anything in mind. And you should all know by now how much I love HomeGoods.

And a wide shot

This is how things are usually looking, with Dan's instruments stored underneath since he uses them almost every week 
(for our church's praise team).

And that's the story of a successful trip to HomeGoods and a refreshed-for-Spring Landing update. Anyone else doing some Spring tweaking?

P.S. I updated the Tour page to reflect these changes
