Wow! A 4 and a 7! Who would have thought it?


I am happy to be healthy and surrounded by people I love. Though I’ll be celebrating at work today, I am thankful that I adore my co-workers and love my job.

Thanks to all for the birthday greetings. I appreciate them all.

What did I get for my special day? J. did good! I love my newest custom art piece by artist Lisa Papa. J. sent Lisa a photo of an art piece I loved while on my trip to Savannah. Lisa used the inspiration photo and definitely made it her own. The palmetto leaves definitely add to the Southern, coastal flair that I adore in my NOLA home.

I have the large 3’ x 3’ canvas hanging over the cabinets in the kitchen. It definitely makes a statement.

Here is the inspiration photo:
