last public post (for now anyway)
i am going to make my blog private after this post.  i think -  thanks to all of the e-mails,  i am going to have a lot of work to do!  but you guys are worth it.  i enjoy your comments so much.   kimber (from 3peanuts) if you are out there, will you please e-mail me?  i really want to keep in touch and i know you changed your information.  

for the rest of you... i'll see you on the other side...
oooh...that sounds scary.  
don't be scared.
it'll still be me.

much love,

Oh I am so sad! I sent you an email awhile ago asking to be included in your private blog. I hope you will include me! I live in Clemson SC and stay at home with my 2 children, ages 3 & 6. I have been reading and commenting some for about 1 1/2 years. I grew up in NC and have family in Va so I enjoy the NC and VA references. I love your decorating style and hope you will include me. It really helps the days with young children to have a fun distraction like your blog. I understand not wanting to be public since you are a teacher. I used to teach and hope to go back when my 3-year-old starts kindergarten. Thanks for sharing your blog with us!

I would like to be able to read your blog if you go private. How can I do that? I understand if you are only choosing people you know. Thanks!

Bethy, I was excited to see more of your kitchen. Ours is almost done. Whew. We went with subway tile instead of beadboard and I like it. I still have fridge envy! Someday... I hope you'll invite me to your new private blog. xo
