I have always loved to decorate my home. No matter if it was my dorm room in college, the small two bedroom apartment my husband and I started out in, or the home we now share with our two kids. There is something about decorating that makes things feel complete to me. The process of coming up with an idea and then seeing it through to fruition is challenging and fun. It is definitely something I wouldn't mind doing for a living. My friend Kim asked me if I would like to come to her home and start the process of organizing and possibly some decorating as well. Decorating and organizing for someone other than myself or my mom is something I have never tried and I am super excited to see how everything turns out. We decided the first thing we would work on would be her mantel for Christmas. We took a trip to Hobby Lobby (LOVE) and a few hours later had her Christmas mantel all ready for the season.
Thanks Kim for giving me the oppurtunity to do this - I had a blast!
I love waking up to the rain then turning over and going back to sleep. I love kissing my kids on the cheek to wake them each morning. I love kissing my husband on the cheek before bed each night. I love decorating my house and making gifts for my friends. I love making to-do lists and crossing things off them. I love reading a great book while drinking a Route 44 Diet Dr. Pepper from Sonic. I love snuggling under the covers when it's cold outside and watching a movie. I love listening to loud music in the car, especially music my kids hate. I love meeting friends for the first time and knowing they will be your friend for a lifetime. I love taking Sunday afternoon naps. I love watching the first snow of winter fall. I love friends who make me laugh so hard I cry. I love that I have several of those friends. I love late night drives and early morning prayer. But most of all I love the Lord and my family. I love that they all love me back despite my many flaws. I love that you are here and hope you come back again.
