I like pretty things. Being home all day, every day with 4 kids, a dog and a cat doesn't lend itself to pretty things. My eyes cry for simplicity and beauty. There are very few spots in my house that are nice to look at. If I had opportunity I would buy an old farmhouse out in a field somewhere to renovate and decorate...that would be a dream come true! For now, these dim eyes need to focus on and appreciate the smiles on my kids faces, the mountain view from my kitchen window and the beautiful words in the books I read. If Fanny Crosby saw many beautiful things, then why can't I?
