Happy New Year!

This year one of my resolutions is to not be so scarce around these parts. Among lots and lots of other things! I am going to be one of those annoying people who proclaims 2015 to by MY YEAR - a lot because 2014 sucked big time. I was going to use another colorful phrase, but I'm trying to be couth here. Today my husband decided that the thing that we must do today is plant a tree. So we did. We headed up to home depot to see what they had in stock for winter planting and the pickings were slim. Most of the options were citrus trees. And while I would love to have a lime or lemon tree, that's a backyard tree. I don't want the neighbors or the HOA complaining if my harvest gets out of hand. And today I wanted a front yard tree.

So we chose this lovely magnolia tree. And of course now I feel like I need to be all gentile and possibly sit on the porch with a hat or something. But then I remember that I don't have a porch on my house that is quite possibly the bain of the neighborhood with it's Hershey chocolate exterior. And the only hat I own that isn't knitted is a ginormous lime green beach hat that clashes with said house.  I adore living in the South, but I don't have any illusions about actually being Southern!

There are lots of things in store with my business and my life and I hope y'all will come along for the ride this year. My year.
