I found out today that our friends’ father passed away last night and I can’t get this song off my mind…

Happy New Year   1 comment

 

To our family and friends,

As has been Lana’s and my custom at the end of each passing year, we look back and reflect on the happenings of the past 12 months and look forward with hope to the year ahead.

We are still blessed to be leading “traveling lives”. Lana continues to commute each Monday morning from Seattle down to Orange County and returns home on Thursday evening. She is now in her 26th year in the securities and financial planning business. She has weekend work functions every six weeks or so and I will usually go down to So Cal for the weekend on these occasions. I continue in and enjoy my job as an operations manager for a fire sprinkler systems supplier and fabricator to the trade.

Sprinkled amongst our work travel in 2009 was our annual trip to Spring Training in Phoenix (we love the “get close to the players” atmosphere and $20 box seats), Memorial Day and early December visits to Dallas to spend time with family, and an 8 day July driving and hiking tour in Alaska. We loved this trip. The wildlife, vistas, and calving glaciers were simply awe inspiring. My camera bug wife took over 1,100 pictures! I thought I would need to call all the media outlets when she saw her first moose!

Even with our travels, it is always great to come back to the Seattle area. The Puget Sound, downtown skyline, Olympic and Cascade Mountains are welcoming sites out the airplane window. We continue to find time to enjoy our friendships here and just being at home.

We wish each one of you a blessed 2010!

Steve and Lana

Tablescape Thursday   18 comments

September 2009

Fall is almost here and to get things started, I decided to do a simple yet elegant earth tone tablescape!  This was a fun tablescape to create.  The tablecloth is a silk flat sheet I bought at Goodwill along with the plates.  My sister found the tablerunner and chair bows at a clearance sale for me and the candles are floating candles that I put on a napkin ring.

I am truly enjoying the last few weeks of summer while looking forward to fall!  My favorite part of this table is the napkin fold.  I will be incorporating different versions of this fold in future tablescapes for sure!

Happy September to you all and for those in the USA, have a fabulous holiday weekend!

I was so excited to find these cute napkins and napkin rings at Sur La Table! 

They were singing spring and I had to join the chorus!
