In a household of guys it has sometimes been a challenge expressing my girly-girl personality. My favorite color is pink, and for some reason that color always gets shot down when suggested for room decor. Hmm...I am also in love with anything painted shabby chic, but hubby likes the look of real wood. (sigh) Over the years we have compromised (sort of), so we have a mix of both. The “look” isn’t as pleasing as I would like, so whole-room reveals will probably never be posted here.
My last baby graduates this year, so soon I will only have to m̶̶a̶̶n̶̶i̶̶p̶̶u̶̶l̶̶a̶̶t̶̶e̶ convince my b̶̶i̶̶g̶̶g̶̶e̶̶s̶̶t̶ ̶b̶̶a̶̶b̶̶y̶ husband that my way is the best way. “Happy wife, happy life” and all that jazz...
Now holidays (more specifically Valentine’s Day), I can get away with pink AND shabby chic, mostly because the guys think it will soon be put away. Thing is, after all of these years Momma sometimes “forgets” and leaves out a few stray items. Funny how that works.
If you have read this far in my ramblings, then you are probably wondering what any of this has to do with that photo at the top of this post.
Are you still with me?
Well, assuming you are, I will shamelessly post it again and get on with it.
For 2013 I am embracing the phrase “You never know if you don’t ask.”…So, if you enjoyed this post and this blog, would you consider following this blog?
