Well, January 14 is upon us. You know what that means – National Dress Up Your Pet Day! Can you believe it? Doesn’t it feel like the last Dress Up Your Pet Day just happened? The months really do fly by!

This year is extra special, too, as it’s the fifth anniversary of the holiday, which (for the uninitiated) was started by an animal behaviorist as a way for people to celebrate and enjoy their pets.

Welcome to the first in what is sure to be a string of 'Too Much Information'-themed posts pertaining to the life of yours truly.

Lately, I've been noticing a lot of my personal belongings are falling apart, or generally coming to the end of their life cycles. And of course, I want the replacement items I buy to be Made in America. So for the next few 'Made in Your City' features, you'll learn more about me, and the things my apartment and I am lacking.
