I am so glad I stumbled upon your blog....love all you do with your home, but I also think you are quite a remarkably sweet person, to boot!

Missy,

I am so glad I had the privilege of meeting you in June! You are such a dear sweet lady and I love your blog. And ya know I keep going back to your laundry room makeover.... our laundry room is a walk through affair and desperately needs help. Each time I go back I see other details that I missed before and each time I come away with an idea of what I can do to help our beast.

Once again it has been a pleasure getting to know you!

Hi Missy,
I love the year end wrap up. You've done so many cool things. Even some that I think I might be able to pull off, sometimes things are so complicated that I just say ---
forget it. Thanks for giving me a little courage. I'd love to have you share your wrap up at our linky party and inspire others as well.
Happy New Year!
Hugs,
Patti

It was so funny when I was reading this post with my daughter and telling her I had actually met you in person, and all of a sudden there I was standing with you! I gasped, " she put me on here"! I felt honored! It's even a greater honor to have met you and to have become friends with you. That meeting vat Traci's was also one of my highlights this year. As for your projects, the laundry room is # one! It is beautiful! Happy New Year, friend! Gail
