As I learned the news of the Connecticut school shooting I became overwhelmed with emotions.  I cannot even begin to comprehend the emotions that those students, teachers, and parents must be feeling at Sandy Hook.  How can something like this happen at the very place where children should feel the safest besides their own homes.  This isn't the first time either.  We need to make a change! 

At this time, hug your family and friends extra tighter.  Take a moment and let the people you love know how much they mean to you.

Our lives move forward and pretty soon this news becomes the past.  Do not forget.

Need for Entertainment

I LOVE the holiday time!  It's such a beautiful time of year devoted to celebrating family, friends, and ourselves.  It's also a time for holiday parties.

If you are entertaining this holiday season, I'm pretty sure that you need to have these:

Amazing serving pieces

Not your average martini shaker

A stylish place to rest your drink

Mood lighting

Popping bottles

Here are a few of my favorite photos:
