Yep thats Warren Moon behind me, checking ME out at snow flake lane! :} haha!
Well it's been a roller coaster of a year for me, the good the bad and the ugly. This year had it all including the sad. The good would DEFINATELY have to be our big trip to Texas at the end of September! The bad, well the economy of course, being in retail these past couple of years has been MORE than just a challenge! The ugly, mmm rough times with the fam, the oh so disfunctional fam! And the sad would definately be losing my mom right before Christmas.
Reflecting now on the whole year it has probably been one of the toughest in my 46 years on this earth, but through it all I tried to always remember to look at the glass half Full and in the end I'm so glad the little voice inside my head kept telling me "everything happens for a reason". The pain and agony of sybling rivalry the aging and chronic illness of a parent, the struggles of friendships and just the everyday sh*#t that we All have to deal with!
I've learned alot through it all, the pain and anguish has taught me to give forgiveness to those I've been denying, to not sweat the small stuff, to hug and tell my children and the ones dearest to me how much I love them and that random acts of kindness can change someones life! It's changed mine! I am so thankful for it all, the good the bad, the ugly and the sad it has made me much more sensitive to other peoples problems and so much more thankful for what I DO have then what I don't!
Happy New Year to all of you!
I Love you and I wish you a Kind and forgiving new Year!

What a beautiful night

What a beautiful night we had at our Christmas open house! Thanks to all who came out and braved the driving rain and the horrible traffic to not only celebrate this wonderful season , but to also support us, our store and our passion to keep bringing you beautiful treasures from days gone by!

I was sooo busy most of the evening I didn't get out and do my usual picture taking. This is a great picture Kris took of Rita, she's as beautiful as the Christmas display!
