i snapped this picture with my phone early this morning. i stood at the kitchen counter packaging orders that needed to go out while my husband stood at the counter to keep himself awake while working on his laptop. my husband and i met in college and we spent many nights pulling “all nighters” cramming for exams and writing papers. it’s funny how years later, we’re still pulling all nighters. sometimes though, it’s those quiet, long nights when the kids are sound asleep, that the most work gets done. i imagine i will have had many all nighters by the time the national stationery show arrives in may. sigh.
