cold tangerines

I am re-reading one of my favorite books (cold tangerines).  I came across a paragraph that says better then I ever could how I wish my thought process was every day....

"I don't want to wait anymore.  I choose to believe that there is nothing more sacred or profound than this day.  I choose to believe that there may be a thousand big moments embedded in this day, waiting to be discovered like tiny shards of gold.  The big moments are the daily, tiny moments of courage and forgiveness and hope that we grab on to and extend to one another.  That's the drama of life, swirling all around us, and generally I don't even see it, because I'm too busy waiting to become whatever it is I think I am about to become.  The big moemts are in every hour, every conversation, every meal, every meeting."

desk revamp

I have this desk (below) that my computer has been sitting on for about 4 years now. I have disliked the desk since we bought it. It has never matched and we bought it because it was cheap and we needed something. So yesterday I did something about it!

I took some brown paint we had left over from our basement and painted everything except the white draw and the top/sides.

Then I took a some super cute paper and decopodged it on the top and sides to make it look "quilty".
I love it!
It now looks like it belongs in the house and less like it got stuck in the house.
