Comfort In 2014

Above all else you’ll want comfort in your home! After looking at Homes Across America and visiting homes and the designers of homes, I can see that Comfort is at the top of the list for home decor in 2014 and beyond.

Happy Birthday Beth

We are looking forward to some delicious gatherings in 2014. You are a great Mom, a wonderful Wife and a great daughter. Enjoy your day.
