I am just about to become 51, yikes, when did that happen??? I've been married for 31 years to a wonderful man, we have 2 children, the lights of my life. I homeschool my kids, funny because I got a degree in art education that I never used because I HATED teaching. It really is better when it's just my two, although there is not enough money in the world to pay teachers who have to teach reading--it is the bane of my existence. My husband and I both love scouring antique stores and travelling to comfortable places. I often say our idea of the great outdoors is a table at a sidewalk cafe. Nature is pretty, but must be kept in its place.
I am certainly enjoying my extra month of spring, can't believe all the leaves are out already and we haven't worn a coat in weeks. I've been doing lots of garden prims of course, with a million half finished projects still in the works...
I did try to sell this original, so glad its blue now!
