Karen - Paige,

I just love you! You are truly an inspiration! I feel blessed to have found your blog when your home was featured on the 2012 Holiday Housewalk Party. Amazing! I have admired your floor stand chandelier which is again featured today – where did you find it?

Ella - It looks like you and yours and your home are doing great! Those flowers make your home look so springy.
I love how you post the lately in pictures since I am a visual person who loves photos.
All your girls look beautiful. I want to know where Savannah got that pink skirt (the whole outfit really) as I am looking for just such a skirt for a while.
You look beautiful in teal photo, especially your hair.
Wow for Emily!

Carrie - Ditto on needing the details of the blanket. I need that! And I’m nosy enough to go ahead and ask what was Emily doing on stage? She’s beautiful. And I also wanted to add that I think you were having very good hair days here! (Although, truthfully I didn’t seem the problems before. That could’ve been in your head.). <3

pam - I love your blog!! You and your family are beautiful from the inside out.
Just wondering…. where that cool cross necklace you have on came from? Sorry to ask!! I would love to have every piece of jewelry you and your daughters have!!! Love it.. Thanks for sharing!

Kellie - Love the pom pom throw too! I have a question about the green drink…can you taste the celery and cucumber? I cannot STAND celery! ;)

Peggy - I had to laugh at all the hair comments! Because you know I have always thought you have lovely hair! But you want to know the truth? Its not your hair that I notice the most… its your lovely smile! It truly lights up your whole face! The love of the Lord simply radiates from you!
Cute, cute necklace! You know what else? I think you need to give lessons in how to dress like a girl! Because I would be the first to sign up!!! :-)

Have a wonderful day! Love, love the pictures! (now i’m off to make a mess in the dining room… designing a few new market bags like the ones i found in france… which shrank after the first washing….) Have a great day, dearie!
