Sneak Peaks

How do you spell CHAOS?!
C.o.f.f.e.e. S.h.o.p.
It is a mad house. Mad car. Mad purse/travelling office.
Here is one of four chairs we've picked. They are super comfy and I love the color. We're still looking for some accent pillows. I can't wait to sit in this chair. Or any chair. I can't wait to sit.
Lucky and I went furniture shopping for HOURS. We found 8 couches we love. We have room for one. I tell you - Garden Ridge has some great deals. I don't shop there often but they really came through for us today.
Just a few progression shots. Can't show ya everything. We want you to be shocked and amazed. And appreciate it like we do having seen the dreadful 'before' photos.
Little by little.
Can't judge a counter by its dust. In fact, you couldn't have judged anything. EVERYTHING was covered in an inch of sheetrock and sawdust. Ma lungs!
Big stuff is a comin'!

Life doesn't stop for big plans, but we work hard and diligently to make our way. The end of phase one is really just the beginning of a completely different life for us. Ready or not.

Ferociously Yours

Love Poem

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways...
by Elizabeth Barrett Browning
How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,--- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

*This is on my bakery wishlist. We have two already, one being 5X this size for giant cakes, but this one is so pretty and it would be all mine. So since it is not a necessity it will have to wait. But I will remain firmly fixed upon it - green apple of my eye.
