  1. Love it! Thanks so much for including my typography posters!
    I love that 3/4 of your family is going back to school. It’s going to be a quiet house during the day! Lucky you 😉

    1. Well, I should clarify… 1/4 will be in school full time and he’s the 1/4 I need around the most, ha. The littles only will be doing halfway preschool two days a week. BUT, having both of them at school even for a few hours will seem like magic, ha ha. And I was thrilled to include your amazing print!
