Thank you Annette and Andrea for sending me terrific books and the extra goodies. I love all of my gifts from my Secret Santas and I couldn't have asked for anything more!
But I did get a little bit more . . .
The week leading up to Christmas, my husband decided that it was time to give me the home library I have wanted for years. I spent a few days cleaning out our home office and then he did this:
He painted the room Shimmering Summer Pool and built the bookshelves himself. There were a few mishaps along the way, but they are perfect now. AND I LOVE THEM. I can't wait to share them once I have organized my books so they are just right (and then I'll organize them again).
