Update #61: Don't Come Around Here No More

I can't tell you how wonderful it is to be back sleeping in my own bed. I doubt that any of you reading this blog has missed me though, considering how nicely gigi had kept up the content. :) Maybe she should just change the title to A Tale of Ever Evolving Style, so I can just bow out. :) Anyway, nothing like a little bright colors and sparkles to disguise the many days of not sleeping enough. Life should be better after I dig myself out of the piles of work I am buried under.

I love Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers. Their music is just killer. When I was much younger, they came out with an Alice in Wonderland type video for their song, 'Don't Come Around Here No More.' Instantly, I knew I wanted a house like that. I used tell my friends that when I was rich and famous, I'll have a house like that. Well... I'm far from rich or even famous!

On a whim, I told my bf (who is an artist by trade) that I wanted a house like that. That dear soul went into action and well... it's taken 7 years and we're far from finished, but I can look around and truly see my "wonderland." If not now more than ever, I truly believe in dreaming. I can honestly say that if you hold an image in your head long enough, it will come to fruition. Nearly 20 years later, mine has.
