{Pretty, Happy, Funny, Real}:


A brand new door painted "Merlot Red".  I just love it because it goes with the bricks so well.  

These three have been best friends forever!  They are all scattering across the United States as we speak.  I really think they will remain close even with all those miles between them.

New binders.  I LOVE binders.  Just ask my children.  They often laugh at me quite openly when there is a sale at Office Max!  I am likened to Gus Gus from Cinderella when he tries to make off with all the corn!'s probably true.

Last college kid shipped out yesterday......sigh.  We have started school this week and it is going well. 

 Most wonderfully, we have started rehearsals for ROMEO AND JULIET.  Drama is good therapy for the ache of missing my older kids.  Here are some lovely illustrations of the famous couple in a very nice volume I found once upon a time.  


  1. Wow, now I'm going to be on the hunt for binders as beautiful as yours! I love your comparison to Gus Gus - I can totally visualize it now! ;) Have a wonderful weekend!

  2. That is indeed a very pretty door! So cheery. And those binders are so lovely, and the notebook too. You are tempting me to go to Office Max. :-) Many blessings to you and yours as your school year begins!

  3. That is a very handsome door! I love that red! Missing college kids is hard. My eldest is leaving next week and I don't think it's really sunk in yet. I love your collection of new binders. This is the season for new stationary after-all ( andmy favorite thing about going back to school I think :)
