    My boyfriend really likes puzzles.

    I could just give him a 500-1000 piece puzzle to do, and he'll be content for the day. 😄

    Piece By Piece It's Coming Together

    I started putting together puzzles when I was young with my mom usually in the cold weather days. It's fun to pull it out on a card table and have it available to work on throughout the day at my leisure. I hadn't put together any puzzles for a while until my bf's dad and uncle...
