Life is a test. We are not present on earth to just exist; we are here to learn. Life is a lesson. Love one another unconditionally. Love thyself unconditionally. We spend our whole lives learning to do this. Some succeed and some never have a clue. I'm trying. Love my fellow man. Don't react and don't always have to be right. This is one I'll have to work on for the rest of my life. Appreciate each day and recognize positive and negative as a part of life's experiences. Look around me and see life at it's best. The joys of living come as you strive to achieve your dreams. Its the quality of each day that is important, not the distant dream once achieved. Teach and nurture my children. You can never give them too much love. -Randa Jex 1/1/94

Tuesday, June 16...One Sassy Lil' Powder Room!

I forgot to blog about my little weekend project...I painted the downstairs half bath with the same paint color we used in the study, Manor House by Sherwin Williams. Somehow in the study it looks brownish-gray like the swatch and in the bathroom it looks eggplant. I love it. We repainted the trim and walls, hung a sheek blue glass pendant light, replaced the old gold mirror with a modern square one, refinished the hardware with matte gold spray paint, and I put a bright piece of my artwork in there for color. Over the toilet we put a shelf to showcase some of Randa's turquoise glass and don't forget our lovely Christmas gift from Lee & Lisha..."Poo-Pourri"! Down the road I plan to tile the floor....I am really interested at trying my hand at mosaic but we'll see!

We are eager to see what Caroline Hungerford proposes for our kitchen design! We meet with her tomorrow and could not be more trilled to see her ideas. Caroline came highly recommended for her modern flair and meticulous planning. She was a top student in the LSU design program and she now designs many homes and offices here in Natchez, one of which is for well known author Greg Isles! She is recommending appliances, wall build-outs, paint colors, finishes, and even has an Autocad rendering of the finished product. We am so excited.

Goodnight girl! You've been busy! I can believe how much you have done to the house already!! It all looks fabulous. I am so jealous of the space you are working with--that home has such a great layout and is so workable. I can't wait to come see it when you have finished everything. And be sure to bring lots of pictures when I see you in July!! Keep up the good work!! Miss you tons!
