Just popping in to share a bit of sunshine with you today :)  Will be back when I can settle in and take a few minutes to illustrate some tile options that make for lovely remodel options in kitchen and baths—tile can be sexy too !!

A sweet friend referred me to this video and I had to share it with you.  The people in my life that carry me, that teach me how to love and remind me of what is important, this song is for you.  God, please teach me mindful loving.

Saying found on Tumblr via here.  Photo taken yesterday on our walk to have ice cream and play in the park.  I need this today; just not feeling whole. Some days are like that.

Perfect timing for so many reasons.  I happened upon this motto photo through the lovely Katy Elliott.  I encourage you to stop by her blog and at a minimum learn a bit about her.  She has an impressive background, is very down to earth and feeling the impact of this economy on her career path; her outlook is quite refreshing.  I have to agree with her #10.  Photography is a newfound interest of mine that has been rekindled as I prepare the studio and write here regularly.  Motto originally created here.

I saw this tonite via Tina Roth Eisenberg of the lovely swiss-miss and wanted to share it with you here.  I am by nature, a relentless perfectionist, not in all things, but in things that define me, things that I am passionate about.  I am passionate about interior design and blogging about it is a new adventure; one that requires me to be visible as I learn.  The perfect read for me at this time and I appreciate Tina for blogging about it, and Bre Pettis and Kio Stark for writing it. Cool poster version designed by illustrator James Provost.  I hope you enjoy it as well.
