Etsy Finds

I recently purchased these adorable prints and cards from Kelli Murray's Etsy shop.  This was my second purchase from Kelli's shop, the first being a gorgeous 16x20 canvas print for my daughter's birthday. The girls and I just love her artwork! I'm just thrilled that she carries smaller sized 8x10 and 11x14 prints now, they make lovely gifts!

New Daily Planner

Fun New Daily Planner!
January 2011- Time to start getting organized! I always get off to a good start by making daily to-do lists, recording birthdays, appointments, and future events, but usually by September I stop using my planner altogether. My to-do lists end up on random pieces of paper, end up getting lost, or I stop making them altogether. I just found a solution to that- a fun planner that will make me look forward to making my lists! This agenda by Joliat contains more than 50 of my favorite childhood games, Dot to Dot. It also contains other useful information, like maps, popular holidays, wine chart, monthly and weekly planning.

Happy New Year!

2010 was an incredible year and I look forward to everything 2011 has to offer. Here are a few things I want to do:

Write more! Keep up this blog and work on that children's story that has been swimming around in my head for years...
Organize, organize, organize! This has always been a goal of mine. Maybe this year I will discover the secret...
Family French lessons! We purchased Rosetta Stone a few months ago to prepare for a trip to Europe in the summer of 2012...
Continue guitar lessons- I learned a few chords this past year, now I just have to put them together in a song...
Adding lots of new pieces to my shop...

White Christmas

Snow Angel
Ready for fun!
White Christmas!
Here are a few pictures from our Christmas vacation to Asheville, NC. We rented a cabin and enjoyed exploring the town, eating amazing southern food, antiquing, and skiing at Beech Mountain. On Christmas day it started to snow around 8 am. By late afternoon we had at least 8 or 9 inches of snow to play in. This Florida girl felt just like a kid again!
My girls!
