I bought this piece at Goodwill months ago.  It is a nice piece, minus the glass rings on the top.  We use it as side table in our living room, and I just try to cover the top with “stuff.”  I have been putting off dealing with it, because of time, but this morning I […]

LOVE/ HATE Relationship!

good floors

 Here’s the situation, I have a love/hate relationship with my hardwood floors.  I have always wanted EXACTLY what I currently have, so what is my problem?  While the distressed, dark hardwood is beautiful to look at, they are impossible to keep clean!  They show every little spot and speck of dirt.

Blessings are there, even if we don't see them RIGHT AWAY

I’m a little emotional this morning, and I’m pretty sure it’s not my hormones!  I am feeling so blessed today.  This morning has not gone as I planned…I missed a workout because my youngest was up SUPER early AGAIN.  But there’s something about just spending those sweet moments with your children that make you reflect […]
