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!

Things around my house that make me smile;)

I am out of town!
I programmed this to post today;)
My little, but cute kitchen!
Love me some red berry wreaths!

Red + Rooster=Perfect!

Love sunflowers. Love my girls artwork more!

Love these shelves! Love this quilt from my great gran'mama!
Frames could be a lot better! You may not be able to see that well but the pics on the bottom shelf are a mix between one's Megs took while studying abroad in Australia and some of Courtney during a two week African Safari!

Megs in Ecuador working for World Teach summer of 2006!

I had to have this basket while in the Georgia mountains in 1988!

The love these shelves. I am a visual person. I like everything out in the open. Otherwise I forget I have it;) I saw shelves like these in a movie and had them made.

The love this shelf! I love the ones in Chili's Res and had it made!
Wishing a peaceful Sunday to all!

Nice tour. I'm a very visual person too. I'm *still* working on my redecoration project, however, you've just inspired me to do a little spot tour on some of the favourite areas in my home that exist already. When it all comes together, I can do the full reveal then.'ve got me thinkin'.... :o)
