OMGosh. I can’t believe they just commented that…..

Ok, I know you've seen them.  The comments on Facebook that are just so..... rude.  Mean spirited.  Downright nasty.  I've almost come to expect it on news pages with hot topics like politics or blogs like the famous Matt Walch's. But more and more I am seeing hateful comments on decorating and painting sites.  "Creative" pages if you will.  And it makes me wonder when on earth did we decide it's ok to type whatever opinions come to our mind?  … [Read more...]

We started this journey 4 years ago next month and we were so, so naïve. I think we … [Read more...]

August 20th. A day I always remember with sadness, yet a grateful heart.
