consistency
my aunt e-mailed me a few days ago. (i have a really neat aunt, everyone should have a really neat aunt, don't you think?) she wrote to tell me about the jibbitz website, because she knows how i love my crocs. in her e-mail she also managed to sneak in some encouraging words to me. i forget exactly what she said, but she made me feel talented and special. i love people like that, so generous with their words. it reminds me that i need to give like that to others too. just words can make a big difference.

i have posted three times today. i have noticed some bloggers post faithfully every single day. i am more like a here and there poster and then boom, three times in two hours. what does that say about me? ummm...don't answer that. :)

have a great weekend!

Love my crocs too - now that it's winter, I wear them indoors like slippers!
Beautiful picture of your home, I love the peaceful blue/white theme.

Words can certainly make a difference! And I think you are generous with yours.

Lovely picture, by the way. I like how your dining room opens up into your living room.

I too have an Aunt (in-law but I am closer to here than any of my own)that is always a spirit lifter! I adore her. Also, on the subject on posting...I tend to do the same thing...I posted FOUR times on Valentines Day! :) Love your entry!

Love the photo. They are all so inspiring.
I am planning on getting a pair of the sandles that Crocs make. Too cold here, but soon.

I kinda post like you, too. I was just looking at your before and after photos - what amazing transformations you have made! You have a real talent and a great eye, and I admire your homemaking style!

I was an everyday blooger till my life got crazy...just not enough time, but I try. You are so right about kind words making such a difference. Thanks for another peek inside our gorgeous peaceful home. It's such an aaahhhhh feeling.

Which room is that? Is it your foyer? It's beauiful. Did you already mention what that color is? It's lovely. I just bought my dd some crocs for Valentine's Day and I'm looking forward to getting some for myself soon too. The hard part is deciding on a color!

That picture is so pretty! I love your home. I don't own any Crocs, but they do look comfortable. I really enjoy your blog. Thank you :o)

Love my crocs too - I miss my crocs... I retired them. Can't wait to get a new pair!

Your home is so soothing. It's like a soft cloud. I post like you do also......sometimes I just don't have a whole lot to say or I don't have a photo to share. I think this weekend is one of those times.

I saw the woman who invented the jibbitz on Oprah and that idea came from being silly and sticking something in her daughter's croc for the day!

My daughter just got a pair this weekend (and it will be months before she can wear them outside) but she hasn't taken them off!!!

I just started blogging and I have trouble doing it everday too.

I agree, your house looks so soothing and peaceful and gorgeous!

Cheers! LA

I also have a favorite aunt who is more like a mom without the judgements. Love the color of the walls in your home....would you share the color and brand with us?

I love your house! It's inspiring!

I am looking for natural fiber rugs. Where did you get yours? What is it, jute? bisal? I don't really even know the difference. Anyways, just wondering...
