About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Living a Beautiful Life

   Isn't that what we all want?  This book is lovely- truly.  It is written by Alexandra Stoddard, who also writes for Victoria magazine.  Love her.  Wonderful ideas for adding joy to many aspects of your day and around the house can be found here.  Every time I look through the book I get a new idea and inspiration.  I own almost all her books, but this one is my favorite....

   I would love to share it with someone.  Would you like to read it?  If so, please leave a comment and I will draw a name on Thursday...  Good luck!
