Hey there! So, I have to be honest, I feel like I am jumping the gun sharing this space with you. Considering the tile debacle that we’ve been dealing with. If you don’t know what I’m talking about (shared on Insta) – we had a couple of tiles in our kitchen randomly buckle up last week. We have no idea why – maybe a small earthquake that we experienced that day – who knows. The problem was, when we tried to get the tiles back down, one broke and the other one wouldn’t fit back in it’s place. We’ve had several tiles start to crack lately, so re-tiling was definitely on the list, just not the top of the list, I mean hello, we are in the middle of a ton of outside projects right now. No time to tile. But, alas, we didn’t want this to be a tripping hazard so to the top of the list it went. More about that later when we get it done!! Today, let’s focus on this table.
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.
