  2. Hey Marie,

    This is the first I have seen from you in awhile. So good to hear from you and your blog. Did you move, I think the last time I read something you were moving????

    I have changed a few things myself. Stop by some time and see. However, I am always about self improvement, lifestyle, and life in general. I do love home also.

    Have a great day!

    1. I have been posting 2 or three times a week, not sure why you have not seen me, It may be because I don’t send my newsletter out every week. But decided to do it again. Everyone that subscribes to me should get all my posts! even without the newsletter. It may be because the RSS feed is different when you sign ed up. Weird!
      I noticed that people don’t like it when i send to many newsletters out because they will unsubscribe. Hope you are well.

  3. These cookies sound so yummy!! I have never tried these before but will definitely be adding them to my baking list!! I love your tea cart too!
