Random Thoughts

We had a snow event last weekend that was pretty big for us, with a snowfall accumulation of 16.5″. It was actually a very beautiful and uneventful weekend. The snow was dry and light, and we never lost power.

EseenHe Many of my friends in Texas were not so lucky. I’m sure it’s even worse than what we’von the news here in Washington State. My thoughts and prayers go out to all that are being affected. I’ve heard that temperatures are starting to warm up but that it’s far from over.

Why does February feel like the longest month of the year, even though it’s the shortest? Is it just me?

Spring is just around the corner. In this post, I share how I bring touches of spring to my tablescape to chase away those winter blues. I created a Valentine’s Day tablescape not too long ago, and I talked a lot about the flowers I used for the centerpiece. Well guess what? It’s all about the flowers again!
