Staying Put

I think this is the first time in months that I've had a chance to relax. I've been so busy with weddings and home remodeling and gardening and such- that my mind has been in a constant whirlwind.
This morning I grabbed a cup of coffee, opened the back door to let the cool air in, and sat down to my blog. I think I'm just going to keep it the way it is. I may change the colors once in awhile, but I've been thinking that it's not what it looks like that matters- it's what it says. Hopefully I'll be able to hop back on the horse and enjoy this journey again. Bear with me as I learn to type with two fingers again! Writing a blog post is a heck of a lot different than clicking LIKE on Facebook or pressing REPIN on Pinterest.
Another reason why I've returned to this comfy chair in the early morning is because I think (cross my fingers) that my internet service has improved. I will attempt to post pictures today of what I've been doing for the past few months. And soon I'll be visiting my favorite blogs again. I've missed the laughter, the eye candy, the reflections of your lives- and the love. I've really missed the love....
In May, my oldest daughter got married:

It was a beautiful occasion!

Then, we started remodeling our house:


Then, we continued with the bathroom:


And into the garage:


Then it wouldn't be complete without a laundry room makeover, would it?

But, luckily all work and no play makes one insane. So I had a great summer in between the stress!

Looking back, despite all the hard work, I have been blessed. Truly.

And now, as I take the last sip of my coffee, I suddenly feel like this blog is my home again. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhh....


  1. Oh my goodness you HAVE been busy! I am tired just reading your post! Your redos are beautiful! I am so glad you had a great vacation to rest up a bit.
    Your daughter wedding pics are gorgeous!
    Blessings, Joanne

  2. Wow...where do you get all your energy? I love your new kitchen but I have to say I also liked the look of the old one.

  3. Love all the updates to the house, but even happier to see you back to blogging. Have missed you! Karla

  4. Welcome is wonderful to have you back. And your remodels look fantastic!!
