Hello Pig!

Wow, this week has flown...I've been missing my hubby who's now working way past dusk to bring in his crop. I've also been missing the healing qualities of posting a few blogs! Quite honestly, there have been two small distractions that have kept me from journaling about my charismatic (ahem) life:

1) A little novel by Dan Brown called The Lost Symbol
2) Another novel I've been tinkering, only after kids are asleep and only if I can resist temptation to open Mr. Brown's new adventure of Professor Langdon.

HOWEVER, I simply must share my newest household item. As we shopped last week, we ducked into Z-Gallerie. It's been awhile since I've been in the store and suddenly I have a great desire to remove every piece decor in my home and start over. The most interesting items in my home (besides photos of my kids) seem to revolve around stains left behind on the couch. I think it's time to start over.

I've been thinking about my cool African's friend house, who creates a Pier One-type atmosphere using eclectic pieces - some indicative of her culture. Since she's from Africa, she can use cool animals, like elephants and giraffes, to create a posh and designer dig.

I was completely memorized by a stunning zebra print at the store, but what good would the print do on my simple ranch farmstead? So, I continued to browse and eventually found, practically hidden in the deepest corner of the store, an artifact that is completely indicative of the place we live. Allow me to introduce to you...pig!

Now, we don't raise pigs anymore, thank God. But they were definitely a part our young adult lives. I'm completely thankful we no longer have to smell the swine. But I always like the way they looked. This little piggy gives me the best of both worlds....and it's a great hallmark of the beginning of our lives together.

I love "Pig", too. He reminds me of "Babe"; which reminds me of the Easter Sunday afternoon when the family sat laughing and crying watching this movie. We all thought Babe was adorable.
Then we all went into the kitchen to eat leftover ham sandwiches.
