just add color...

i've been thinkin'....

it snowed here yesterday and today...
well actually I considered it more sleet yesterday which completely soaked me with the places we had to go yesterday...just ick...but this morning is beautiful with some snow.

this morning we have some sunlight...

and what better way to be able to look at the snow and think of the beach...

is to simply just add color...
so even though snow looks beautiful...I really think want to look at it and imagine the beach...
because next week that is where I'm at...
yes, with the hubby...
and no kiddos...

you may think that may cause a little bit of trouble...but I guarantee it won't ~ double guarantee... actually Bobby does for sure too...

So I brought a few of my favorite things to the snow because if I associate these things with the snow...I will actually think of the beach ~ a little mind "trick" you know.
I love beautiful, clean white...

and then to add color to it makes me happy...
just like for Madison...
I have too many projects going...her room has so much white {which we planned} and we {I} will add some color to it too...because she is a color girl...but I love the white so the color stands out more...and that is what I am working on for her too...
I'm off track again, I know...what's new, right? ~ I used to be so "on task" all the time...and now I'm not and I'm bouncing off the walls...

just like I stopped now because a hope for Haiti song is on the television {we play music during the mornings} and Cheryl Crow, Keith Urban, and Kid Rock are singing "Lean on Me" right now...

and I have always been a fan of all three...yes that means Kid Rock too...I realize some of his songs have quite detailed lyrics with not the best content...but have you ever actually listened to his voice...it is beautiful...the old soul rock voice...I love that!!! {I guess I shouldn't call Kid Rock's voice beautiful since he is a man, right} but it just is...and in that song where they are singing together...you can hear it.

I'm back on point again...

so

that is exactly what I did...

I brought a few of my favorite colored things in my home outside to imprint that image in my mind...

nothing is better than flowers...lillies...yes another favorite of mine...with color...and beautiful white snow with it!
Wonderful weekend everyone ~ enjoy!

I'm a bit nervous next week...I have something neat planned to show you...but it makes me really nervous...but I'm doing it anyway because it is a big step for me!
