Sweetness and love.

First the sweetness: I found these notes, handwritten by Michaela, while straightening up today. They were from last week when I had a bad cold and lost most of my voice.
Note 1 (which makes my heart glow a little) reads:
"Dear Mom, I hope you feel better. Love, Mimi"

Note 2 (which makes me think she may have a future in politics) reads:
"Dear Jenna, We should do what Mom wants. Love, Mimi"

Smart girl.

Now the Love: Here are the before and after pics from our bedroom makeover project of last weekend. We painted the ceiling and walls, got new curtains, new curtain rods, new rug and put on different bedding. I'm currently searching for a new set but this works fine for now. The quilt in the "Before" pics was handmade by my Aunt Kathy and it is so precious to me that I only keep it on the bed for a few months of the year so it doesn't get trashed by all of us. We also took some stuff off the walls and hung my favorite pictures of the girls from over the summer under our 'Love' sign.

During: Michaela really enjoyed helping out.

And... After!

I see that the color of the walls looks a little different in each picture... the true color is in the picture of Michaela painting.

The ones below look too dark or too taupe or too gray. But you get the general idea.
