Welcome 2009!

This is one of my favorite Jill Scott songs--this is for Tavo. Babe, you have me fairly...smitten. Here's to 2009!


Happy New Year! We just had a glass of (pink!) champagne and watched the fireworks over the capital from our front porch (at the red house). You can see all of downtown during the winter. Here's what we did today--over at the new house:










We'll show you what the stars are for tomorrow.

One more--Although I adore Erykah Badu, if you can find the version of this song sung with Jill Scott and the Roots from "The Roots Come Alive" it is well worth your time. This one goes out to my Tavo.

I dig color where I live...my son and I would paint each room a color...dig the cookies too, I love pecan...dig the music, feel like these words are popping on the page like your champagne...while I was working on the e last night I was jamming to Rob Thomas...

HAPPY NEW YEAR you two!

Buff- we do have it...our kids...

I love the brown! I have painted ever single solitary house we have ever lived in....even military quarters. (That flat white is so cheap, we just paint it back before we PCS)

Happy New Year, I can't wait to see what you do with the stars.

Great paint colors, that brown is awesome! And I like the tasty looking pecan cookies. Have a very Happy New Year!

My husband and I are renovating our house...we just built a new garage this summer and it took him forever to get it finished so I could move stuff into my new office...
