Happy Birthday Hannah

Happy Cinco De Mayo & Happy Birthday to my little Hannah Banana.  She is now 5yr's old & the cutest little thing.  I love her soooo much & miss not being able to see her when I want to. My sister & her family now live in Montana, I think it's been about 4yr's now. We talk just about everyday driving from work back to home.  Speaking of work, 5 days left till I'm officially on vacation for two glorious weeks. It's now count down. My husband & I & another couple will be off to New York, catching the Red Eye.  Can't wait.  My husband was born & raised in New York, & still has family there. We'll land in New York, rent a car & drive to Washington DC for 2 days.  Then back to New York for lot's to see & lot's to do.  Will, I finally finished reading the Artful Blogging Magazine, pretty cool stuff.  I think my favorite story was the one where a couple of people got together & wrote out positive & nice things on a piece of paper & placed them where someone would find it & read what it said. The object was to bring a smile to their face & hopefully keep them smiling throughout their day. Check out Andrea's blog at,  So cool, thanks for the inspiration.  Can't wait to see the reaction of the people's faces in New York.

I finally got it.

To blog or not to blog.  As I ponder that thought, I came across Artful Blogging in my Somerset Studio Magazine.  I thought Artful Blogging, is there such a thing as an art to blogging. Well, I bought my first issue of Artful Blogging. Wow! What a great magazine, it totally drew me in, I was so compelled in reading it, I found myself staying up & reading it till late at night.  Which for me anything pass 10:00pm is late, considering I get up at 5:20am. Ok, so I don't consider my stuff below, blog writing, just little inserts of what my stuff is. So...... I'm going to give it a try (as scary as it is) since I'm so intrigued by reading what other people have written. I almost feel like I'm invading their privacey, but hay they wrote it, and I can't help but read it. It truly is an art in being able to express yourself like that. It's like when I went to the Laguna Garden Tour with my friend Susan, I'd watch people go by & actually look into peoples windows, I mean really look. I thought that's terrible.  Hmmmmm, as I was walking by I thought do I look or not? Heck yeah! I looked, I had too. I wanted to know what color was their walls? How did they decorate? Ok, so I admit it, I'm just as nosey. I looked! Oh well, I  had to see if it met my approval, which it did. We had a wonderful day, the sun was out, not too hot, just right.  What a perfect day as you can see below.
