Hey friends! I’ve been scheming in my head again. And this time about our family room. You know I realized that we have been updating this house one DIY project at a time for three years or so now. I kind of think I’ve forgotten how to just decorate a space. Hahaha 😆 But, now that most of the DIY projects are done I need to turn my attention to some overdue decorating updates. And, I’m starting with our family room.
Hey there everybody! I have been staring at this wall in our breakfast room for weeks now. Well, I mean I’ve been doing other things besides staring at this wall, but it has been getting a lot of my attention. 🙂 Mostly, it’s been getting the side eye from me. I’m just kind of tired of the gallery wall. I love seeing the faces of our family everyday, but to be honest, they don’t even look like that anymore! Those pics are four years old. I have new pictures, but I just think I’m ready for something different.
I was sitting on the couch taking a break yesterday and I was staring at my half empty mantel. Does anyone else leave empty spaces around the house after Christmas?? I took the Christmas decorations down, but I never put anything back up in their place. I do this quite often actually after Christmas. Mostly because I’m not sure what needs to go in it’s place. Often times I’m bored with what was there before. So, I just leave things empty. Give the house room to breathe for a while. And give my mind space to imagine. But, yesterday, it needed something. So, I shopped the house, and gathered together some winter looking items and there you have it!

Another year has passed and here we are at the start of a new year. Each new year is met with excitement and energy. But, how far will that take you? Setting goals for the year is always a good way to give you some focus. Goals give you something to work towards.
Okay friends, we shared our goals from last year and the progress we did and didn’t make. Great thing to do at the end of the year.
