Welcome Home Saturday

Hello friends! Welcome to this week’s edition of Welcome Home Saturday, a weekly series where several of my friends and I gather every Saturday on our blogs to share what is inspiring us around the web. Plus, catch a peek into what’s been happening with me lately.

Happenings at Home

Oh boy what a week! It was one of those weeks that felt so long yet so short. Can you realte?

A lot of it had to do with our 14 year old, Grace getting hit in the head at her soccer game last week. The game that she played right before our Ed Sheeran concert. Yep we had no idea that she had a concussion at that point and took her to a huge concert. Looking back we feel awful but she loved every minute. It was her Christmas gift that she had been looking forward to.

We figured out the concussion part late Sunday night and then she saw the trainer at school (thanks to her basketball coaches’ suggestion) and then we took her to a local concussion specialist who ended up being incredible!!!

She is now slowly working her way back to normal activities (still going to school) just no physical activity. It is club soccer season so really tough on her mentally since she just joined a new team. She is a touch kiddo and between this, starting high school and a new team that’s a lot for a 14 year old. Head injuries are very serious and I just ask that if you have a moment you left our sweet girl up in prayer. Thank you friend!

Zinnia Update

Our zinnias are thriving! I keep cutting them back to make bouquets and arrangements and I swear there are more out there every time!!! I’ve been sharing a bunch of my videos about them over on Facebook and Instagram and last week one of my Facebook reels went viral! It was my one about planting them in pots.

If you aren’t following me over there too you should pop over and take a peek as I share a lot of fun things daily!

    This week we besides being at a lot of doctors appointments my mom popped over and helped me spray paint some old Pier One chairs I have had forever. I chose the color French Blue from Rustoleum.

    Here is a before and here is the after. I love how they turned out…it took me a bit, but after my mom helped me style the mantel and add pillows I was smitten. So here is a sneak peek at my Fall mantel.

    1. Hi Kelly,
      God b/ess Grace in dealing with her cincussion, let alone a new school year and all. I am praying for all of you as you go through each day. You all inspire me to be more. Thank you

    2. Well, darn. I’m so sorry to hear about Grace, but glad you got a proper diagnosis so she can rest and recover. I hope she’s back to 100% in no-time.
