My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

Saturday's weather and project report ~

VERY RAINY!!!!!!!!



Cooper came over!

I just love the way this cover looks!


~Bedroom Project~
The blue pail is the color I am painting my bedroom.

I was struggling to choose a new color for my bedroom, then I got this in the mail and instantly fell in love with shabby chic powder blue of this pail. I took it to the paint store and they matched it;)

~Getting the walls and ceiling repaired~

These guys were quick and did a super job!

Steven is his name and drywallin' is his game;)

Before pictures are HERE
Now it just has to stop raining so it's not humid so I can start painting;)

You have exquisite taste! I love, love, love "shabby chic". It's so soft and livable.

The cover of the magazine looks like an episode of "The Darling Buds of May". Did you ever see that British program? It was wonderful!

It's been crazy-raining here, too, and it looks like the skies will continue to dump on us for at least another day. I hope things dry out quickly so you can start laying some paint down.

I love how a room is absolutely transformed by a new coat of paint. I hope you'll share pictures when everything's done, too!

Thank you, btw, for adding me to your favorites list. I'm off to do the same, as I seriously love your blogging/life philosophy.

Beautiful paint color! I keep waiting until we've settled for sure to actually paint...we did a couple rooms in our current place, but I think until I have a house and a yard, I'll never really feel it's "home."

Love that color of blue. Cool! How exciting to be having all that work done! I can't wait to see it finished.

The party was great and exhausting...I am starting to post pics so be sure to check it legs are still sore from doing the electric slide!
