Hey everyone. Sorry I missed the Friday Feels last week, we had a snow storm roll through Thursday and Friday and my kids had a snow day! Which means we did nothing but play outside, drink hot chocolate and watch Christmas movies. I always love the first snow day of the year…the 8th or 9th in a row, not so much. Crossing my fingers we don’t get to that “stir crazy/send wine” point again this year.
I just wanted to pop in today to wish you all a Merry Christmas from my family. I wasn’t on top of it this year for a whole family Christmas card, but I did manage to grab a couple shots of my goofballs, so here is our Christmas card this year.
I went sweet for the front.
And the back, especially the top right photo, captures how we really feel about trying to take photos ;)
Also, I know some of you look forward to my mom’s dog card every year, so here is her pup’s chilling on the beach. They are enjoying the perks of retirement in Florida too ha!
I’ll probably take the next week off while my kids are home on break, and I’m guessing you will all be busy enjoying the holidays too! Let’s chat about the New Year a minute – in January I’m hoping to do some posts about the building process and more details on our house along with all of the frequently asked questions I get. There seems to be a lot of you building or remodeling, who have questions about paint colors, sheen, moulding size, board and batten, the building process etc…etc… and I’m hoping to answer them all!
So, here’s your chance to help me out – if you have any questions for me about whatever – home decor, building, family, food, style – anything! Drop them in the comments below. I will be collecting them all and trying to answer them in a series of January posts.
A few blog posts you can definitely plan on in the year ahead – I will be tackling my daughter’s bedroom and I’m going to take you along on the design process. Send me some good vibes guys (or again wine), my sweet 9 year old has been changing her opinion daily on the design and we are going in circles. I have now brought home 6 different rugs that we have decided against and gained a few gray hairs in the process…but we are having fun figuring it out, mostly ;) Somehow we went from aqua boho to beachy and black and white themed? This is the design board I showed you – and now I’m trying to work in black and white too?!
I’m trying to roll with it, because when I was a kid, my mom let me choose candy apple red walls for my bedroom and then I painted yellow sunflowers on the wall…I should have seen a DIY blog in my future based on that genius design. I want my daughter to have the same sense of ownership of her room and love it just as much as I did when I was younger. Albeit my mom didn’t need to share that horror show of a room with the entire internet, but I feel pretty confident we will work it all out!
I’ll also be sharing our basement, bar area and my parent’s newly renovated house in Florida. If you have suggestions of what else you’d like to see let me know that too!
I’m wishing you all a very Merry Christmas and blessings to you all in the new year!
