Day dreaming

My husband and I were just born in the wrong era.  Is that just me, or do you all ever have that feeling too!?  Me, I love all things antique, including but not limited to Victorian Homes, 1940s hair styles, bell bottom jeans, records, swing music, men in suits, well you get the idea.

I have this dream of owning a 19th century home.  Something that's been lost over the decades, but still holds on to that charm and character of the old world beauty.  Josh and I would LOVE to bring something like that back to life.  And more than that raise our family in it.  Just thinking about Christmases with my grandkids around the piano in the great room gets me all crazy excited. 

What it must have been like to have elegant parties with the men in the back smoking cigars, drinking brandy while the women gathered in their finest dresses, adorned in beautiful hats, sipping tea over the latest gossip.

**sigh** and then my mind whips me right back into reality.  Yeah, daydreaming can be nice, but I think I will take my air conditioning over that fantasy any day!

Hey there blog world!  And welcome.  I have to start this post by giving a HUGE shout out to Jenn over at Munchkin Lands.  She created this amazing look for me, and I couldn't be any more happy or excited with it all!

During Ellen Degeneres' first show, she came out to do her monologue and began by saying she was starting up a new relationship, and was committing (to her audience) to be there every day.  So that's what we are doing here. Starting up a relationship.  To be honest, I haven't figured out where this is going to end up.  I'm not even sure I know what I want out of it. I do promise to commit to it and give it all I've got.

As a Stay At Home Mom (SAHM) of 2 toddlers life can be interesting, ugly, down right nasty, and completely beautiful.  So let's just start there....with life!
