I like your list better then mine. I've been busy going through every room in my house and getting rid of things I haven't used in a year.
This weekend I organize my walk in closet.
Ahhhh, I really need to get a life. :)

Have fun!

Auntie Cake said...

Ever since we had a friend quite unexpectedly pass away on us, we have been trying to do many of the things on your list. I have so many blessings in my life, but often don't recognize them, I am trying to do just that. My kids love using the good china and crystal for ordinary dinner, makes it special for them. Making memories, I call it. Enjoy those flowers sweet girl!!!

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Holy cow, Koralee! YOU MUST GO TO FRANCE! Please! Now, tell me, you DO NOT HAVE A CHILD APPROACHING COLLEGE AGE? You look like a college student!!! You really need to see Paris. You will love everything about it and let me tell you that the French are marvelous. My favorite region is the south were the hot sun bakes the lavender fields and causes the perfumes to become more intense. The food....HAH! You like cupcakes? You would never, ever come back to this part of the world. They really know how to eat out there AND stay skinney!!!

Have a beautiful day sweet friend, Anita
