The Blessings of Family

Today was a day of celebration. My little great nephew, Maddox, was baptized.
Spending the day with my sisters and all their children and grandchildren was amazing. God has blessed us in so many ways.
We spent the afternoon feasting and catching up, taking pictures and sharing stories. It was a day we won't forget.

Tonight Tim and I meandered around JoAnne Fabrics searching for the perfect fabric for my laundry room inspiration board.
I had just about given up and was leaving the fabric section when Tim found just the right one. It's awesome when he does that. He has amazing taste and one thing I lack; patience...

I picked up some burlap ribbon for a wreath in the living room and a box to store the kids' video game controllers.  We checked out drop cloths at Home Depot to make our living room curtains but couldn't find white ones :(
Tim grabbed some chalk board paint and a roller; which thrilled me because it means he is making our pantry door. He said he can have it done in a matter of minutes...I love his enthusiasm.
Living in 180 year old house isn't easy. There are always projects to complete and repairs to be made. Something about this house just let's us know it needs to be cared for in a special way. Preserving history and all the years the previous families lived here needs to be honored and celebrated.
I can feel the love and bonds of family that still abides within these walls. We are blessed to be it's caretakers and it shows it's love to us in return.

  4. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to writing.
    I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to
    begin. Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!
