My first issue of my new subscription of House Beautiful came in the mail today!  Merry Christmas to meee!  (A big THANK YOU to my wonderful hubby, who knew I wanted some sort of decorating mag, but didn't know which one.  He got it right!)  :-)  You see, I've been a little obsessed with interior decorating lately.  It's always been an interest, but with our house on the market, I've been dreaming of all the beautiful things I'll be able to do in a NEW home!  I have all sorts of ideas, but nowhere to put them.  So today, I'm going to grab hold of my excitement and be inspired!  I hope to use this blog to collect my thoughts, share my projects, and maybe even connect with others who like to make things "Pretty & Mine."

p.s.  I'm not known for being the best at blogging...  I just don't make myself DO IT!  I'm really hoping this time I can stick with it!

p.p.s.  Okay, to be perfectly honest, a huge part of why I haven't done well with my previous blogs is because I am a perfectionist, and I am super self-conscious.  I don't want to write anything unless it's super awesome!  So yeah, I'm going to try to just write this blog for ME, and not worry about what anyone else may think.  With that said, I have done nothing so far but simply create this blog and write this post.  Usually I would want to make sure that I had a cute background and header, blah blah blah, but I don't have time for that tonight.  And I don't want to lose my motivation and not get started...  One step at a time...  :)

  1. Just found your new blog via your updated MeetUp profile!

    Regarding your p.p.s., this is exactly the reason why I fail to blog as well. Perfectionism makes me unable to do things unless I can do them perfectly. So frustrating. Do you know Fly Lady? She is very helpful for people like us!!!


I love, love, love hearing from you! So what's up? :)
