Monday Room Beauty and Storm Prep

Monday, January 26, 2015

Happy Monday everyone!  If you don't see me for a few days here, it is because of the blizzard hitting the northeast.  I am lucky and don't always lose power in storms, but this one is predicted to be huge so it is likely. I don't have time to pre-schedule posts this week, so if the power is out, I'll be out of service for a while. 

I do still get excited about a blizzard. I've seem some rough times with them having grown up on the coast in MA, but I think the excitement gets in the blood of kids who grow up here and get 3 weeks off from school for a good old-fashioned Nor-easter (blizzard of '78. THREE weeks off. We were the happiest kids in the world).  My kids are feeling that same excitement now. My dad, who has lived here for 74 years, disagrees, so I guess it doesn't get into everyone's blood....just the lucky ones :) 

Hurricanes? Pass. 
Blizzards? Bring it.

I hope all of you in the storm's path buckle down and stay safe and warm!

Gorgeous rooms, as always. I'll take the window seats in the stairway - a great perch to watch a blizzard unfold, right? ;-)

We're missing this one (thank goodness), but we lived in the Chicago area during the blizzards of '78-'79. I was a kid then, and still love the photos of the giant pile of snow in our little backyard. We had so much fun! We visited my childhood home this summer, and those memories came right back!

Be safe! Three weeks off school?!? Holy crap!

I love browsing your pics because my eyes go to something that I've been subconsciously eyeing for a while. Today, it's lighting!

Stay safe up there! I've never been through a blizzard, but I've had my share of hurricanes. They aren't usually fun, but our neighbors from Louisiana cooked for our entire block when Ike came through for a full week. They had so much frozen Cajun food in their outdoor freezers. It really brought our entire neighborhood together, and it tasted amazing too.

I hope you and your family are safe & warm, Stacy! I love a blizzard too--my daughter has been sleeping with a spoon under her pillow in hopes of a snow day, but alas Michigan is dry as a bone. Gorgeous rooms as always! Xoxo~Carie

I hope that you made it through the storm in one piece. It certainly looked fierce in some areas.

I always find so many beautiful things when I visit here! Even though I do not always comment.

Have a great week.
