An Official Coloradoan

Last week I got my Colorado drivers license and today, I got my license plates.  I feel so legit now, $450 dollars later.  Yep, that was the cost for my plates today. Holy Yikes. 

But I'm SO happy to have those green mountains on my plates now. And to be surrounded by real mountains daily. And to LIVE here, in COLORADO.  I still can't believe it.  It's a dream come true.

Writing Center

Long ago, I was a first and second grade teacher.  I still think and plan in themes, as I did back then.  I guess I'm always be wired that way.

In my classroom, we had little "centers" or "workstations"- a math center, an art center, a writing center- you get the idea.

As I've been setting up my dream craft room here in our new home, I've been in full teacher mode I guess, because here I am, happily in my writing center.  I haven't hung the art work, but already, it surrounds me and makes me feel so happy.  As does the little window of so many trees in our yard. 

I've always dreamed of a yard with so many trees that there would be too many to count.  And now, with that dream realized, I wanted to set up a little writing desk by the corner window that looks out to all the trees.

My craft room is a work in progress, but it's feeling pretty sweet so far.  I'll reveal more of my centers as I get a little further along.
