I miss the sun….

I’m am so tired of rain. I actually like rainy days most of the time… especially if I can stay at home in my pjs. 🙂 However, last night Matt and I were trying to figure out the last time the sun was out … and we could not remember! I’m lucky that today is my day off so I don’t have to go out in the windy, wet world today (actually I do have to go to the dump later — such fun!), but I had such a hard time getting up this morning.

And you know what… on these rainy days I find it very difficult, though, to stay away from the afternoon nap! 🙂 Anyway, I selected a bright, cheery card to share with you today.

However, I’ve already got plans in the works to grow my business (hopefully double) by next year — so I may have to limited it strictly to hostesses — so be sure to book a date soon to ensure you get invited. So would you like to see some of the projects and goodies we had? Well, I
