Thanks! And hello!

I sometimes have a little trouble getting out of bed in the morning.

I'm sure you're familiar with the feeling; laying in your bed with a mind that's telling you it's time but a body that only wants to catch a few more minutes of sleep.

I have a routine in these instances. Whenever I feel like relishing the warm bed after the alarm is shut off, I grab my smart little phone and use the google reader app to browse a couple new posts from favorite blogs. All the while, I'm coaching myself to get up and get going. "Only two more posts before heading to the shower. Really. I mean it this time."

Such was the case this morning.

Then I read the title of the latest post from Kara Paslay Design. Who did I see?

Me. Us. LaLaLand!

My heavy eyelids flung wide open. My sleeping bear hubby woke to a fit of giggles and broken sentences. I got up and out of bed, now motivated to start my day.

Thanks so much to Kara for the shout out. I'm humbled. (And I'm dressed at least half an hour before I would've been without it.)

And welcome to all new visitors. Thanks for stopping!
