Friends, what a few weeks.  I don’t even know where to begin or what to say.   I didn’t know it was possible to have my heart feel so heavy, and yet at the same time filled with so much hope.  Anyone else?   It’s just a mix of a lot.  A lot of emotions, a lot

Our family room remodel

I’m a “done is better than perfect” kind of girl.  So while I was going to wait to show you our family room until it was totally “perfect” I thought I’d show you where we’re at today (neither, done or perfect..lol).  We still have chairs we’re on the hunt for, a bench for by the
