Farmhouse Update & a Link for your Weekend!

I’m already back! Its because I really did want to share those farmhouse pictures I mentioned from Monday.  I’ve been working on this house since January and learning so much as I go. It was just the  foundation and the studs when I joined the project so its been incredible to see it come to life.  There are still many small details (some missing hardware, light fixtures, and then of course the finishing touches at the end), plus many larger details (a vent hood, furniture, and artwork) still to go.  But we have come a long way and to stop and look back at this point to breathe and appreciate where we are is really a great feeling!

Also, just one more thing before tomorrow that I hinted at earlier this week.  My friend Kelly over at Carried by Love is hosting a new series about Contending for the Faith and has invited several bloggers to write throughout the month of October.  She shared her heart about it here live on Facebook yesterday kind of introducing the series and then tomorrow I’m her first guest blogger!  I would love for you to check it out even though *gulp* its incredibly vulnerable and I probably will be experiencing some kind of vulnerability hangover tomorrow after its published.  So if you know me in real life, you’ll understand why I’m leaving town at 4am in the morning. Haha!  Just kidding.

But in all seriousness, I think its going to be a really great series so I would love for you to check it out here and subscribe to Kelly’s blog here so you won’t miss any of the posts.  She even has a FREE CUTE PRINTABLE to print out and frame!!  If you go over to her blog, you’ll find a link to download it and print.By the way, since apparently I’m blogging again, if you have not subscribed to my blog and would like to receive my posts directly in your inbox, I’d love for you to sign up for that here!  Thanks so much for reading!

Life Update

Well as you any of you work from home mothers already know- summertime is HARD.  I have so many feelings about cherishing time with kids and also getting any work done.  I tried my best to find that delicate balance, but as you know, whether you work or not, its just plain hard.  I had […]

My Winter Living Room

We’ve been busy trying to stay warm and get back to routine over here. I shared on Instagram last week that I always struggle with getting back to regular life after the holidays.  We’ve just spent so many days cozied up with our little family and then to see them all spread out in their […]

Gettin’ Down to Bidness

Saturday I drove to Brenham for Holly Mathis Interiors’ Creative Business class.  I spent the day in Brenham at her studio and then at her home for some serious inspiration and education from Holly herself.  I met a ton of other women at all different stages of doing this decorating/styling thing and the whole thing was […]
