Of Mice and Me {a Meet Me in the Middle post}

I just created a really gross collage that you’re going to wonder, “What on earth? Why?” Yeah, cause I am cool like that. WARNING: I talk about mice and there is a picture of a dead one further down. We have lived in old houses for most of our married lives or on a farm. […]
