Well, I haven't posted for quite awhile. No particular reason. Though these are not my own pictures, they inspire me no less. Blue, blue, blue... It was my mom and dads favorite color. I'm finding the older I get, the more I'm going back to where I started. What I know.

This is one of my favorite kitchens. I love the sparkle of the lighting, crisp clean feeling of the white cupboards, and the roughness of the ceiling. PERFECT!

This kitchen has beautiful blues. An old farm sink that we had in our Benton house, (miss it), and of course, my favorite dog. Doesn't she look just like Sophie?

Big changes here this week at our house. Ben goes to Germany on Sunday. From there, we don't know.
Sadly, a young 21 year old Marine, just came home to Maine, for the last time, from Afghanistan. His funeral was today in Madison. I can't imagine.
The news said he was a very religious man. I hope that means he knew Jesus as his Lord and Savior. If he did, he is with Him. For his parents and family, knowing their son knew Jesus, is the beginning of comfort and peace, for such a time as this.

I will pray for them. Will you join me. I know God will be faithful to comfort their hearts.

Hugs from Maine

Oooh, you have great taste. I like all of those rooms very much. Hmm, that sounds as if I am also complimenting myself. LOL

Lisa, I love the kitchen with the aqua touches and the chandliers!! Is your son in the Military? I am a Military mom as my son spent 6 years in the AF and now is in the full time reserve until Feb, when he will just be once a month. He has been in Kuwait and Afhganistan right after 9/11. I still tear up every time I hear of a soldier who gave their ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Yes, I will pray for the family. I will pray for your son and your family too. Wishing you a Happy, Healthy New Year.
