I am madly in love with my new three drawer cabinet, which Mr. Bluebird installed for me yesterday. It replaces a little desk surface that seemed like a good idea when we built the house. We used to keep our computer there and it was a spot for our daughter to do her homework. Obviously, technology and life has changed, so this new cabinet is going to be awesome!

Happy Labor Day!!!! Up to anything special?
