Most of us will never forget where we were on September 11, 2001. I was home and had just turned on The Today Show and saw the second plane hit; I was in shock. I remember feeling that way for days and days. My husband was in Puerto Rico on business and was supposed to fly through New Jersey on the way home the next day. I was terrified. He ended up staying an extra four days and flying through Texas instead. 

Some people say that this is a part of our history and we should leave it there. I disagree. I spend time looking back every September 11th and saying a little prayer for all of those directly impacted by this terrible event. This is one of those things that was a life-changer for me. I refuse to forget about all of those innocent people who went to work that day not knowing they would never go home.

Please take a couple of minutes out of your day to remember that horrible day eleven years ago and remember how lucky we all are.

Domino is back!

Well, sorta. Were you addicted to Domino magazine like I was? I kept every copy that I ever got. I loved that magazine; then they decided to ruin my life and stop publishing it. Who does that? I've never met a single person who looked at Domino and didn't like it. Well, good news...they produced a special edition Domino that came out yesterday! I got my copy today and CANNOT wait to flip through it!

Will you be getting it? Let me know what you think!

One listen and you will be hooked. I've loved this song for months and keep forgetting to share it with you...but now I am!


Sometimes I find things on Etsy that I love so much I want a million of them. I figured I'd share some of my favorites with you. Isn't it funny how when we look on Etsy, we all find such different stuff? All cool stuff, but so different.

You all know I love cats. Cats on Washi Tape? Brilliant!

Enjoy the last real weekend of Summer. Fall is coming....
