Hi am here! We decided to go ahead and go up north this weekend. Our friend said things were stable and life was too short to sit home and wait. He said, "Life is precious, enjoy your family." They were heavy on our minds though. We had a wonderful weekend just hubby, myself and our littlest. Grandma and grandpa were there for one night so she was the queen of the castle.
Cutting back on decorating will be a must for my new life. So for Tweak It Tuesday at Cozy Little House this week I made some changes. Now that everyone is back in all our activities; school, dance, piano.....
I used to enjoy blogging in the mornings in the quiet but I will have to change things up as mornings are too chaotic now. I am just going to live this first very full week and see where some free time lies. I refuse to let blogging make me feel pressured as it is something I have always enjoyed. I never want to lose that.
Placed some end of summer color in the dry sink. I love it. Simple.
I removed the busy centerpiece I always had on the table. Placed a runner with napkin holder and salt and pepper and thrift store candlesticks. We eat here a lot and it needed to be simplified and less cluttered.
One day I tried something in the kitchen that I thought would make dinner set up easier and I asked my husband how he liked it and he said, "Whatever works for us." EXACTLY!! I told him that would be my new motto. Whatever works for us. If something isn't the most attractive but is helpful in keeping the house running better than that is what I am going for.
A simple pumpkin placed in the middle will be perfect for through November.
The house is in need of attention so I better get at it and then I will drop Q off for her first day of preschool. Have a great day!
