For Edie...


So Edie and I have never met in person, but she is someone I can say would be on my list of people I would give anything to be friends with. She is crafty, witty, fun, has great style, loves color, is not afraid of painting furniture, is a great mom, makes you want to jump into her blog every time she posts and give her a big ol hug, but my favorite quality about her is that she is faithful and isn't afraid to share her faith with all of us! I first started reading her blog back in January of 2009 when she re-did her laundry room (at the old house). I instantly loved that not only was she up to her eyeballs in black paint, but she had time to sew two mini skirts, make draperies, and run to Hobby Lobby or wherever to buy her 1/2 price "laundry" sign! Only a trooper could do that! She is a girl after my own heart with her posts about making rosettes, and having garage sales, and painting chalk board paint on a WHOLE wall in her house, and providing me with yummy recipes, and sharing how she is not PERFECT (but very nearly, in my book!) and overall, just being an outlet when I need one. So as you read this Edie, please know that you are adored and loved and this CA girl transplanted from the deep south of GA thanks you for so much inspiration ! Praying for you, but knowing that our Lord has a mighty plan and you will be well taken care of...Happy Birthday my "blogland" friend :)
