Living with Martha at 20:11

What I'm Doing at 20:11 in 2011... I've been doing chores around the house since I got home from work... but just a few minutes ago, I picked up this issue of Martha Stewart's magazine, Living. It just arrived today and the cover is so inviting, I couldn't resist. The photography in this magazine is outstanding... and always one of my favorite parts. I can't wait for Sierra to try this decorative technique on some of her cupcakes.

I am absolutely fascinated by Martha Stewart. I think she is brilliant and one of the most creative (homemaking and business) women alive. She is so successful because she doesn't settle for mediocre. Everything is the best, not matter the effort. That's the secret to her success. She doesn't skimp or cheat or "half ass" anything she does.

I don't get too hung up on imitating Martha... I'm content to keep striving to think like her. There's always room for improvement.
