Jamilyn, thank you for the awesome comments. I adore your taste so much, I was thrilled when I saw your note! This looks like a fab book and you know I'm a follower!
Well you already know all about my design dilemmas. I'm sure I'll be posting more soon!
Hope you enjoy the book Megan!

I would like to thank all the followers that entered and I really was happy that you shared some of your decorating dilemma's with me (and everyone else).  Hopefully they won't be "dilemma's for long!

{I am in Maryland right now.  We decided to continue our travels from NY and stop here to visit family.  My daughter said that we are like the traveling hoboes!  We sure are getting around!  I am using my daughter's laptop and hopefully will be doing another post or two while visiting.  It is so beautiful and lush here.  Spring is in full swing!}
