A blank wall...now adorned in love!

I knew I wanted to put something special up above my kitchen window, a special saying or a Bible verse. A meaningful thought to capture the heart of my kitchen...and armed with my 40% off Joanne's coupon in hand I found it...right there on the scrapbooking aisle. You have probably all see these by now. Removable Vinyl Lettering! Just perfect...it says:

"The Fondest Memories Are Made When...Gathered Around the Table"

I love it...and it was a snap to put up too.

We have "Family Dinners" around that table every Sunday night...our three older kids that have moved out come home to eat, my brother, niece and her boyfriend come, my husband and I and our two daughters still living at home are there...and there are always a few other unexpected friends too. There are opportunities for fond memories every time you dine together, whether it be a meal for two or a banquet for 20!

So take the time to sit and have a meal with those you love...it is time well invested!

Hi Carrie,
Those are so nice...I have painted over my dining table
"There is no place like home"
and over my bed
"always kiss me good night"...
Glad you are back.
