How sick would this look above a sideboard in a dining room?  Do you think it would get dusty?

Every nursery needs a stylish mid century modern rocker.  This one is quite stylish, but I'm scared I'd get stuck in it without the ab muscles to pull myself out!  It may be worth the risk.

2013 is here!

We ushered in the new year today with good friends watching a marathon of Between Two Ferns and eating tiramisu.  It was a good beginning to what will be a great year!  Happy 2013!
