Love that first kitchen with the giant chalkboard. My kids would be over the moon for something like that.

Also, LOVE your blog.

Happy, healthy 2010.

I can not say enough how much of a thrill it was to be included in your guide! Desire to Inspire was one of the very reasons I started my blog... so I'm just thrilled, thank you very much! Oh and thank you for pointing me in the direction of so many good blogs too, looking forward to exporing them all!

I'm slowly making my way through your blog recs, and have found one or two to add to my favorites. What I'm discovering mostly, is how lucky I was to locate DesireToInspire! The sheer tonnage of well-researched posts, rather than visual spaghetti thrown up to fill space, the dedication and warmly professional approach as contrasted to the -- hey! look at this! its like fung shui! approach -- you two are truly marvels in what suddenly seems to be a very crowded blog market. Vogue vs. The Sun. I'm probably one of the most vocal 'neh, that didn't work' commentors, but I would like to be very clear: what you do is important, and the way you do it is extraordinary and inspiring. Thank you.

Thank you so much Jo and Kim! I can't believe it has been three years since I first stumbled across Jo's Flickr page and from there your great blog.
