Love Is Always The Answer

Some of my favorite quotes come from Martin Luther King, Jr.  What a man, what a vision and most definitely what a man for God and others.  I long for the day when we will all feel the love and equality that we deserve.  Hate is such a devastating and destructive emotion.  Love is always the best answer, no matter the question.

My Love For Haviland & Co. Limoges China

One of the many things I collect is Haviland & Co. Limoges china and more specifically the hand painted gold and white pieces.  I absolutely love the look and details included and simply can not pass up a monogram piece.  It started with a collection of six M bread plates and developed into a passion for hunting and finding new pieces.  At the moment my collection is still small, but it has the potential to be vast with the way I seem to be to locate pieces.

I feel an episode of Hoarders in my future ... 😉

A few years ago I purchased my largest amount of pieces when my best friend Lance spotted a number of monogram pieces at an antique store on the Marietta Square. He called me and told me of his find and I immediately raced over to beat the clock before the store closed.  It was an exciting purchase as the monogram was one letter different from my grandmother and one letter different from both myself and Little Bit.  I was thrilled when I brought it home knowing one day I would wrap it up as a gift for her.  It is truly so beautiful. 


Thoughts For 2018

Since we had Winter Day off from school yesterday I completely felt still sucked into winter vacation.  We were rumored to get ice and a wintry mix with the possibility of a little bit of snow but all we experienced were really cold temps and rain. 

Gross and no thank you! Instead of venturing out into game/presidential traffic we stayed in for the day, next to a warm fire and I took full advantage of the two helpers to help me tackle Christmas decorations and get them packed up and put away.  It turned into a very productive day, and I am always super excited to have extra time home as a family.  I will call that one a win, win.


Winter Sale Scores

As you may have noticed on Instagram I celebrated a birthday yesterday. We are still in celebration mode and I am not upset about it one single bit.  I honestly think a whole weekend beats one day of celebrating any day of the week.  With the perfect mix of family time, brunch with besties, a fabulous movie and dinner with those I love most I can not imagine celebrating any other way.  

Oh, and on your birthday make sure you add extra pink marshmallows!  ☕


Organization For The New Year

I love to organize pretty much anything, have I shared that with you?  My husband calls me Monica Geller when he sees me get out of bed after getting all tucked in to put something away I left out.  I can't help it, and to be honest it does help me sleep so much better.  I really believe in having a space for things, it helps me with the clutter that comes with having a lot of us in the house and definitely helps them put their own things away.  With a house full of people we can create some serious chaos in a short amount of time.  Sometimes I feel like I just tidied a space and five minutes later it looks like a hurricane blew through and left all kinds of stuff scattered in its path.  I am not sure about your house, but my people are prone to misplacing things and if I can keep them putting things where they belong we seem to be able to cut down on the "can you find my ---" asks.


Coffee + Marshmallows

Yes, I love my coffee.  I think about it just as my eyes open in the morning and most likely again at night before I go to bed since it is the first thing I do when rising each day.  I can remember being a child and watching my grandparents enjoy their coffee and wondering what all the fuss was about.  I was little then and now ... simply put, I am a coffee addict.


A Whole New Year

Happy 2018!!  I am days into major hibernation with my people and truly I can not imagine spending the holiday break any other way.  The kids have had multiple adventures and I have been the one to lay low, probably lower than I have in years and I can tell you I definitely don't hate the decision to unplug some and truly just relax.
