Home Depot...

At 7:30 this morning Home Depot delivered two pallets of goods to our house.
About $3,000 worth of product.
Needless to say, I'm gonna be busy for a while.
I'll post new house pics. soon.

One Simple??? Word

It amazes me that as children one of the first words we learn to say is "no",
As adults one of the hardest words to say is "no".
I'm searching for a life of peace and less commitments which sometimes is going to require me to say "no".
It's a lesson I'm in the beginning stages of learning.
My first steps on this journey were to delete my myspace and facebook.
I'm on a mission to cut out any unnecessary commitments.
Blogging is necessary.
You women encourage me beyond belief.
Your friendship inspires.
Thank you!


Today is a new day...
Today I'm choosing to let go of the past
And to look forward
I'm going to learn from past experiences
And help them shape me better for the days ahead
I'm choosing to move on and look to a better and brighter future
Full of freedom, peace, healing, and forgiveness

Change In Perspective

These words struck me hard this morning at church.
They are going to be my new theme.
No matter what comes, I will rejoice.
I will rejoice, and be glad.

Have I Lost My Marbles?

I am STRESSING over picking out my countertops.
I have looked at hundreds of granite samples and can't find anything I love more than carrera marble.
It is more fragile, sensitive to heat, gets scratches, and looks worn in.
Is it bad that I don't really care because I love it that much?

What is not to love about those counters?
After getting some much needed advice from Kim,
I think I'm going to take the plunge.
Please don't tell me I've lost my marbles.

Worry Wart

"Worrying is like a rocking chair.
It gives you something to do,
but it won't get you anywhere."

I Heart It

I am loving these inspiration photos. Clean, crisp, and cozy.

I hope one day I have a girl and her room can be half as cute.

I am loving chandeliers.

Such a simple room, so cozy and peaceful.

Chandelier once again. Everything looks so fresh. Love the glass knobs on the dresser.

Who wouldn't want to spend an afternoon of girl talk there?

Such a great mix of treasures.

You Know...

Have you ever asked a question that you already knew the answer to?
I did in my last post.
The second picture to me wins, hands down.
Problem is, hubby doesn't like light counter tops. He likes the dark ones.
So...I have spent the last two days convincing him that the lighter ones are much warmer.
Your votes also helped convince him.
Thank you for confirming my thoughts!
Y'all are a blessing.
Much love,
