Dear Two Thousand and Ten,
It's time to say goodbye.
Just when I got used to writing you down,
you leave me high and dry.
You were a good one, and I'll try to recap-
but there is no way to attest.
The adventures of this year- seriously-
I've never felt so blessed.
Market trips and antique shows-
I've become quite the scout.
I'll admit- I get WORN out.
Wrapped up some projects and started new ones,
Taking (few) pictures along the way...
Lots of work and travel,
including a trip to Santa Fe.
Fell even more in love with light fixtures,
and porch swings- for an outdoor recline.
So I decided I wanted to make my own
and dabbled in product design...
We experienced a FLOOD in Nashville-
Boats were cruising down streets.
and we fled to avoid the heat.
Went up to New York and the Hamptons,
and on tour with Brooks & Dunn-!
Then back to Nashville to find a familiar face
Spent some time outdoors,
fishing with my favorite guy-
And that mask makes me want to cry.
I've moved to a bigger office,
piles of fabric books galore.
But I don't care how messy it is,
I'm happy to spread out on the floor!
This year I've struggled with balance-
business woman + friend + wife,
but I listen to the advice of my coffee mug-
"Don't let your inbox run your life!"
Just went to Sunny California to visit Hoyt's family-
it rained the entire time!
then down south to Alabama-
first White Christmas since 1889.
(OKay it was 1880-but a girls gotta rhyme.)
For me, the best "recharge"
is time with the people I love.
So tell 20 - 11, I'm officially ready !!
Well….. sort of.
