I love to sit
and then DO.
Along the years, most of my personal goals have come to pass
and have passed and gone.
Yet more room in my allotted time on this earth
has been carved out to seek other endeavors that remain to be challenging
but nonetheless, fulfilling.
Two years ago, January 1, 2009 I wrote my first blog post:
Decorating is my cup of tea. Since childhood, I have looked at rooms with a critical eye and visions of torn down walls replaced by french doors inviting you into expanded spaces and customized fireplaces. While proposing such projects, my father would just look down at his little girl, snicker, and move on. These days, my husband is the lucky recipient of my audacious ideas. He shares however, my vision of making something beautiful out of what you have and the journey has been a lesson on what you can do on a budget and an abundant imagination, not to mention a lot of hard work and patience. I dedicate this first posting to my beloved husband of almost 27 years who has willingly and lovingly created my dream cottage. Merci bien mon cher et je t'aime de tout de mon coeur. - Anita
Our dream has been slowing awakening into a reality. In early spring of 2011, I hope to share the intended destination with you, but for now, here are some snapshots of the journey.
Be audacious and focus on a journey's end and make 2011 a voyage to remember and share it with us!
BONNE ANNÉE MES AMIES
