Hi!  Welcome to the first post in my “Making a House a Home” series.  I’m so exctited about this series and about you being here.  I’m looking forward to a great month of dialogue, encouragement and inspiration.

As I thought about this particular post and what it was going to be about, I decided the best way to present it was in “person”.  Well, the next best thing to being in person anyway….a video.  As I mention in the video, I think that being “face to face” is the best way to communicate what I have to share with you this time.

Just click on the links for each segment and it should take you right to the video.  Now, keep in mind that this is “first take” footage.  I wanted this to be as real, natural and honest as possible…so this is me, sitting in my home as if you were here with me…just talking.


I apologize for the funny stuff with my mouth…I had just eaten a snack before I started filming.  🙂  Sound good?  Okay, go take a quick break, get yourself a snack, and meet me back here so we can pick up where we left off.

My Story, My Priorties

I forgot to mention that I talk with my hands and look all over the place when I’m talking.  But, when I’m listening, all eyes are on you. Let’s check back in for a few final thoughts.

Final Thoughts

Thank you so much for your time.  I really loved being with you today!  I do hope you will follow this series and meet me back here at mrs. hines class next Thursday for “A Trip Down Memory Lane: establishing traditions in your home.”  Until then, let’s get the dialogue started…
