Big News…Today is Bittersweet

endingsquote

Hi y’all.  I hope you had fabulous holidays and 2014 is treating you well.

As many of you know, I have once again been MIA.  I have tried and tried to get back into the swing of things around here, but have found that my heart isn’t in it anymore.  Most of you know that a lot has changed in my life over the past year and a half (a divorce and two moves) and I am very proud to say that I have grown and evolved greatly during the transition.

I feel that it is time to finally let go of the old and allow the new to flow into my life.  I have heard the knock for awhile, but it is hard to let go of something you truly love and something that has taught me so much and at one time brought me so much joy.  I have the best readers, and you are the reason that I have struggled with this decision.  I am blessed for each and every one of you.  Thank you for being with me on this journey.

I will end this blog today, exactly 3 years after starting it.  I began writing on my 30th birthday.  It has taught me so much, way more than I ever could have imagined.  It taught me how to trust in my interior design skills, it helped me learn, start and grow a graphic design business (which I will continue). It helped me reach out and connect with like minded folks when I needed it the most…and it taught me how to blog and market and so much more.

I am excited to say that I am not leaving the blogging community…just growing, evolving and following new passions.

Today, I am starting a new blogging journey.  I hope you will join me at Fresh Living

Home for Christmas…A Tour

I hope you had a lovely weekend.  Have your holiday festivities begun?

This weekend, I finished up my Christmas shopping and baking.  I can say I am “officially” ready for Christmas with one day to go…I also spent a little time photographing my Christmas decorations to share with you today.

Decorating was so much fun this year.  I hosted my first Christmas party, so the few days before were spent sprucing up the house for Christmas and the party.  My mom came over, I cooked dinner and we went through the house dressing it for Christmas.

I have to say, ” I love my little house.”  There are so many days I walk through the house feeling truly blessed that I can call it home.  It is so comfortable for Jack, Gracie and myself.

Over the past few months I have made quite a few updates that have really brought it together to make it feel like a home.  I haven’t had a moment to share many of the changes with you.  Today, I am excited to share a little Christmas around the house and the latest updates…

Wow, Christmas really snuck up on me this year!  December has flown by and I am certainly not ready.  I am finishing up my holiday check list this weekend.  One thing on my weekend checklist is to take photos of my house decorated for Christmas, I will share those Monday. What are your plans this weekend?

Happy Weekend!
