My niece Kaitlin (then age 10) drew this picture of my home with the Doodle Buddy iPhone app and it may just be my favorite piece of art.  She captured the bones of our contemporary city townhouse surprisingly well, but more than that she captured the colorful happy feeling inside.  Guests often tell my husband and I that our home is the kind of place where they feel comfortable kicking off their shoes, curling up on the sofa amongst the giant furry pillows and feeling they could stay for hours, happy and at ease.  I can't imagine a better compliment.  As illustrator Tad Carpenter says so beautifully in his graphic quote:  "What I love most about my home is who I share it with."


FAVORITE THINGS: A colorful happy home filled with family and friends. Here's hoping you share a loving, relaxing Thanksgiving with yours.
