oh happy Monday sweet sweet friends:) How was your Mother’s Day? Ya’ll never cease to amaze me with your comments so full of love and encouragement to this weary momma:) You fill my heart bucket and I am bursting with excitement to share with you the beginning of our home transformation ~ the Dining Room.
Oh girls we have so many more ideas and things to do in here but we are just thankful to have this much done knowing baby steps are good!

where does a girl go with no interior design degree or even a small knack of putting things together that GO?

She is the peanut to my butter
the cheese to my macaroni.

and F is also for Fun. I no longer want to live safe. We are ready to walk on the wild side in life.
I want to explore outside the box…really smelling the flowers
color .. words that inspire and build up.. pieces that bring me joy
these are but a tiny bit of how Nikki and I are re~ making this house into our
A feeling…how do you decorate your home? or are you like me and aren’t really sure you are muddling you way through or better yet..

praying for each of you today that you grow in holiness and that you turn to God for grace for today..that you know you are not alone..ever! That I rejoice with you that He is faithful even when we are not. That God is doing a new work in each of your lives. Causing the dreams He has planted to begin to grow..and to know you are perfect just the way you are..flaws and all.
love you much…
