Friends at

As I ride the bus this morning (from NJ to NY), I watch the men and women getting on the bus, dressed in their business attire, checking their blackberries for messages and scheduling their day with meetings and phone calls. I myself, am checking my blackberry, but checking on the website.

I began to think why I enjoy communicating and sharing pictures and ideas with total strangers. I realized these people aren't interested in the square footage of my house; the neighborhood that I live in; the taxes I pay; etc. They are sincere individuals, sharing ideas and asking for advice. The same as me. I look forward to sharing my latest project with them. Suzie and Freckles chic, rebecca, mrslimestone, lynette perez, etc. are my decorpad buddies. Suzie is a the BEST for creating this.

Some people I interact with on a day to day basis only want to compare what they have to what I have. Not to say that all people are like that, but the ones that are, I cringe when I have to talk to them. Then, I get aggravated because I feel like I was defending what I have. I'm exhausted . . .

Be thankful for what you have each day and enjoy the better things in life.
