I would like to remember these words more often! They so remind me of my mom and how she looked at every little thing that she faced. I hope to do an art piece with this quote in it as a reminder to myself and those around me to rely on God and His wisdom.

So those of you who know me, know I have an obsession with drawers, cool storage, and antiques. Well today I scored this beauty for my studio re-do in the near future! My hoards of paper and such will find a new home in this lovely! It needs a little TLC but I'm sure it can't get too much better. I love Craigslist! Thanks Pete!!

So- anyone who watches "Mike and Molly" is sure to know how funny these two characters are. James and I were lucky enough to see Billy Gardell (Mike) do a stand up routine a couple weeks ago. I was a little worried that he might be raunchy and ruin my whole image of the show. Turns out he is down to earth, extremely real, and absolutely the funniest guy I've heard in a really long time! So glad we went, and laughed for hours!!

So this is my dinner I made last night, and I thought it rocked! LOVED the butternut squash risotto! The kale chip left a bit of a bitter after taste, so I munched on those between bites of the other two things. All in all I was satisfied through the evening, and proud of myself for trying a new recipe!

I can't believe another year has come and gone!/ It truly escapes me how time can go by so quickly. My "baby" turned 18 on December 22, 2011 and it is a strange thing. He is an adult in many ways, but yet seems sooo young to me still. I remember being that age and thinking I knew it all. How wrong was I??! I'm still learning at the ripe age of 43. I'm trying fiercely to give him as much independence as I can, but man is it tough. I just want to hold on for dear life!

So with the new year comes new challenges, and I'm really determined to make this a great year all around. Wish me luck!!
