smack in the middle of our kitchen. While Allie colored pirates, we glued, taped, and drew images on our wall. I've always had a wall of something whether it be words, postcards, or artwork, however, I've never really had a 20 foot stripe before. I have to admit, I really do love it.
I'm sure most of you might think this is ridiculous, in which case I invite you to make a poster then. Hang it where you'll see it everyday. Make sure it has only things you like on it. Pictures, words, anything. I can't tell you how amazing it is to walk into a room only to find how you imagine your life right in front of you. The glowing, shiny, and colorful sight makes me smile and giggle every time I stroll into the kitchen. It's there, it's real, and it will happen. Each and every picture, list, quotation, drawing, you name it, will happen. We are now living the lives we want. Well, I guess you kind of have to with a reminder like this:
And yes, our wall does come with rocking chairs and tractors. I'd be happy to lend you my crayolas and to make you pancakes if you want to come by and start your own artwork. It's a Saturday night well spent.

It's not "I can't" but "How can I?"
I also made a few signs as a friendly reminder to the emotional eater in the house:
right on the door of the pantry and
next to the refrigerator door handle. There's never a dull moment on the marsh.
