I love these curtains... Americanblinds.com is the best! Yes, that is a snow storm you see out the window. Daddy and Princess are going skiing tomorrow. Princess is VERY excited. I am too - to have some alone time. You can see how we have large evergreens for privacy all around the back yard. I don't think P really had an appreciation for these trees but I know this is AWESOME. Especially when it snows, so pretty. Lots and lots of privacy. After living in a bedroom community, you come to appreciate privacy.
