Ready to continue this journey…

I can’t believe it’s been over a year since I’ve last posted.  Just thinking back to when I had to put this blog on hold due to my stepson’s diagnosis of leukemia feels like it was just yesterday, and yet it feels like it was a lifetime ago, because so much has happened.  We spent the first month of his protocol in the hospital with him, and then many hospital trips since. I’m so grateful to say that he’s in remission, and pray that he’ll continue to be healthy until his treatment is finished by March of 2018.  We’ve made many new friends along the way and I’ve been so inspired by all the generosity and kindness towards our family while we helped him battle through to get to where he is today; happy, healthy and thriving. (excuse me while I go wipe my tears…)

So since he’s doing well, I feel a little better designating some time to what I love to do, which is projects and updating the blog!  I’ve actually been quite a busy bee, just haven’t had the time to blog all about it!  Our house looks a lot different from when I last showed you, and I’m looking forward to letting you all into our home again. And, with the help of some friends nudging me to plan and execute their wedding for them and getting such great feedback from it, I’ve started an event planning business! It’s called Lovely Occasions and I’ve got a few weddings booked already for this year. I’m very excited about this venture and just eager to create beautiful events that my clients dream of.  So…wish me luck!

And I want to tell you, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being here.  I hope I’ll be able to bring you more creative inspiration for you to make your home exactly how you want it to look and feel. Let’s do this!

Stay lovely,
