Random thoughts on an almost summer sunny Saturday morning:
1. When did Czechoslovakia become the Czech Republic? How did I miss that? My son told me that Czechoslovakia is so 1990.
Just like me.
2. They’ve finally released the Downton Abbey trailer. I kept seeing trailers for the trailer. But now? It’s official September 20, the Downton Abbey movie will be coming to a theater near you. I’m going to be there opening night.
3. It was a good week on the blog. We talked about life lessons from Steel Magnolias and these amazing budget home decor finds and talked about tips for growing hydrangeas and discussed the correct way to say PEONY.
4. And lastly, as we celebrate Memorial Day this weekend, I want to honor all of our incredible men and women in uniform for their service and the families of those members who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our country. It is because of you that we live in a country full of promise and possibility.
I can never thank you enough.
