For Texas and Carrie

For our Western family and friend who took a little trip :(, this is for you.  Carrie, you asked for some pictures from the outside world, and Laurie- we just miss ya too much and know you’d want to see :)  Here’s the first totally finished project—well, except for a very few minor details :)bedroom 1Have to say- I was quite impressed with the ability to make the window appear larger—YaY HGTV!  Carrie- there’s something you can do- redecorate your house in your mind after watching endless home improvement shows:)

bedroom 2 And the quiet resort getaway- we’ll forget that there are children in this picture.  Small oversight.  Somehow they believe they are justified because ‘their’ porch isn’t complete.  Soon!!balcony 1balcony 2There ya have it- a small completed project from the outside world Carrie—and Laurie—WE MISS YOU!!!

Feel the ~LOVE~

I came across an encouraging article in our local Pittsburgh magazine- a breath of fresh air in today’s world, for sure!  Secret Agent L has been anonymously stalking unknowing people with little deeds and acts of love around town, and her acts are spreading~  After receiving an anonymous little basket on my porch one day a few years ago, I firsthand know just how much a simple, little token can brighten your day.  (Thank you, whoever you are!!!)  If you’re curious about very creative ways to show someone they’re important, check out ~Secret Agent L~.  And please, if by some little chance you are offended with today’s current beer post, please skip it and move on to the other posts- there are FAR too many WONDERFUL ideas to get caught up on a little 6 pack of alcohol! :) 

Feel the love….  and pay it forward…
