a new me.new year.09

it's that time of year again! making our New Year resolutions. this year i have opt to skip this step of bringing in the New Year. i have learned from past experience that after the first week of posting my list of New Year resolutions on my refrigerator nothing gets accomplished by the end of the year. i have decided to pick one thing i wanted to work on for 09', and that is
STOP PROCRASTINATING (aka, paint my banquette, hanging artwork on the walls, stain the cabinets...etc)... check back to see how my not procrastinating is working out....

our newest addition and have a very merry heart of a holiday

What is Christmas? It is tenderness for the past, courage for the present, hope for the future. It is a fervent wish that every cup may overflow with blessings rich and eternal, and that every path may lead to peace. -Agnes M. Pharo

today i reveal the truth about love. for months i have tried to get rid of these canisters because they did not fit the decor (i feel they are a bit country). I have tried taking them back but I just didn't have the heart to. For months/years this has been on my mind and I have searched to find something else,but I just keep coming back to these canisters... even though i have tried taking these canisters back many times, to buy a better canister that I feel i will love even more. but your first love will be your only true love... it's not in my heart to just abandon my canister as if I don't love them... that's the thing about love, love will come find you just to remind you of who you are... and so my friends, even though these canisters look a bit country, the perfect marriage has been formed and I am keeping my first love!
