subway and keep calm art

craftily ever after has been hooking me up with awesome subway art and keep calm art for the past three holidays.... halloween, thanksgiving, and christmas! it's a great addition to my new house decorating- i bought an 8X10 frame from hobby lobby and have been replacing the art at every holiday. most my friends coming looking for it when they visit (most not bloggers yet but maybe one day i will convince them to blog).

tuesday's love pearls....

study the past, search for what you still do not know, hug the present, and hail the future with a heart-penned map of hope. give yourself permission to re-route your sojourn as weather permits.

love pearls by nancy swan drew

i have some great books around the house... my mom gave me this book for my birthday in 2001. (if you give someone a book make sure you write and date in the front cover- i always love to look and see who and when i got the book) :). the author writes on the first page, thank you for being my lovely, inside and out, precious daughter. please do me a huge favor and live an enchanted life. no one deserves it more than you. love, mom

i've decided to share some of this book with you weekly... i will post something from the book worth reading and thinking about every tuesday.

today's: honor - who you are and who you will become. leave room in your busy life for those that adore you... just in case you ever question your magic!

final days of vacation

i have exactly 1.5 days left of my vacation. i have been off of work for at least 15 days in december- gavin and i have done a lot of fun things from writing a letter to santa, making cookies, making gingerbread houses, playing in the snow, relaxing, and playing. can't believe that we will be back to the grind on monday- but looking forward to a fresh start. i always feel like a new year means a fresh start to life again. time to reorganize goals and projects... we accomplished a lot in 2010 but can't wait to see what we can check off the list in 2011. happy new year!
