Spring is finally here!

You have to LOVE this weather. I did some landscaping this weekend and actually sunburned my nose! There is something really great about that first sunburn of the season (as long as it is not a bad burn). The way your nose feels crinkly when you press on it and you just feel like you have that healthy, outdoorish color. I was looking pretty pasty lately and now I look less like the walking dead.

And, COLOR! Green grass. The daffodils are blooming. My maples have buds that are the most gorgeous red. The magnolia tree is all budded up and ready to bloom. I can’t wait!

Now I realize that there will still be cold days and my grandma always said there would be 3 snows after the forsythia blooms, but I am the eternal optimist. This weather has given me a taste of warmth and the hope of summer to come. I will take all of these days I can get!
So, for now, you can find me in the garden. My nose will be sun burnt, I will wear my worn out, totally comfortable gardening clothes, I will have dirt under my nails, and I will love every minute of it!!!

2009 Parade of Homes

We are soooooooooo excited!!!!

We have been asked by a designer of a Parade of Homes builder to help decorate the home with our portraits! How awesome is that?! My mind is racing. I have a million ideas and on top of that, she really liked some of the images we already have here so there’s no telling which of our clients will end up on the wall of this $890,000. home.

The Parade of Homes will be in Dublin this year. The builder is Gossing Construction and the design in incredible. I will give more details as it is ok for me to release them. We had a meeting with Julie, the designer, to get an idea of colors and styles and I am so impressed. I cannot believe the other businesses with whom she is coordinating — Geitgey’s Amish Furniture, the Great Indoors, Forton Iron Works, Hilliard Furniture and KA Menendian to mention a few.

This will be the third time we have been approached to do this and I am more excited about this one than any other. I did a little happy dance around the office with the phone in my hand when Julie called. She is wonderful! A really nice, classy lady, from New Albany, loves her Siberian Huskies and skiing.

So, you will all have to make plans to come to the Parade of Homes to see us and to meet Julie. I can’t wait.
