Busy Day

We've been busy today! Breakfast with Barrett, lunch with Mema Gail and Pepa Bob and dinner with Mike and Norlene. Logan and Logan, Brad and Rhonda, and Didda were along for the ride too!

We're in Tennessee!

We made it from Texas to Tennessee tonight. I am extra excited to be in Nashville. Our Christmas gift to Rhonda was the embroidery below. It measures 4" x 4", and we matted and framed it in all white. She loves hand-made gifts!

McKinney, TX

I spent today with Mom and Elizabeth exploring downtown McKinney, TX. It is a thriving small town where the town square revolves around the old court house (now a community center). All of the storefronts have been renovated and turned into restaurants, clothing stores and antique markets.

Our favorite stop of the day was Happiness is Quilting on Kentucky Street. I picked up a few supplies for embroidering, a new hobby that I've picked up recently. I'll post some of my recently completed projects soon.

Late Christmas

Donnie, Elizabeth and Samuel got in at 9am this morning. Their trip ended up being 25 hours instead of 13 because of ice. In Texas of all places. So we celebrated Christmas this morning when they arrived.

Christmas Day

We are having a wonderful Christmas at Mom and Dad's house. We will celebrate this evening once Donnie, Elizabeth and Samuel can be here with us. In the meantime, these are some pictures of Mom's beautiful Christmas decorations.

Snow in Texas!

So apparently the snow decided to follow us to Texas. We may have a white Christmas morning which I was not expecting. Kane took this picture at the outlet mall this afternoon.


No luck figuring out how to post from my blackberry. I'll figure it out soon enough.


We arrived in Dallas late last night. Time to get a little more milage out of our boots.

Travel Day

Kane and I are heading to Texas this afternoon for Christmas. From there we travel again to Tennessee. I am getting so excited to see everyone! 

We have a long layover in Washington D.C. ahead of us. I may try my hand at writing a post and sending it to the blog from my blackberry. We'll see if I can figure it out!

Navy Blue

Lately, navy blue rooms have been catching my attention. This image of a blue library with books stacked horizontally is my most recent favorite. I decided to paint the hallway in my tiny apartment navy recently. I'm quite happy with the result. I'll post images of it once I get all of our art hung.

It snowed in NYC on Saturday! We ended up with about 10" once it was all said and done. These pictures were each taken about 5 minutes apart. 

A New Project

I have decided to take on a new project. I'm going to start documenting my life through photos and thoughts that I post on my blog. My plan is to post at least once a day. We'll see how long I can do it! This urge came about mainly because of my feelings toward Facebook. I do not like it and never intend on becoming a member. So there. I hope that this will be a really great alternative.

Keeping in touch with friends and family can be difficult. Hopefully this blog will give you a little look into my daily life.
