Welcome Home Saturday Happy Mother’s Day
Tomorrow is Mother’s Day and I know this day can be either joyful or hard emotionally depending on where you are in your journey as a mom or your relationship with your own mother. Either way I want you to know you are loved!
I am blessed to live close to my own mom, Tracy who I know several of you know and love! She has a monthly blog post that she shares and you can read her last one HERE!
I love you mom and thank God every day for making you my mom. I am constantly inspired by how you love Jesus and our family and how we can decorate and talk about decorating for hours. Ha! Appreciate you being my sidekick and always encouraging me and loving me no matter what!
And as most of you know I am a step-mom to two amazing young men and two awesome little girls. Everyday I thank the Lord for making me their mom and I am so proud of all of them and who they are becoming. I love being a mom and I love our crazy fun life.
Happenings at Home
Yesterday we jumped in the car and made our way to Durango for grace’s soccer tournament this weekend. God bless Mike because he loves driving where as I get SO bored. It was a beautiful (7 hour) drive and we are excited to spend the weekend here in Durango, Colorado exploring and watching soccer!
Have you been to Durango before? This is only my second time and the first time was when I was very young.
The big news that happened in our home last week revolves around our youngest Crosby.
Crosby tried out for the performance dance team at her dance studio last Saturday. And guess what? She made it! The Studio came by and left a sweet sign in our yard. And to say she was over the moon excited would be an understatement! We are so proud of her and all of her hard work!
School is wrapping up for the girls and our May is and has been jam packed! It has been a bit weird not to be teaching in May for the first time in 20 years. And a first time where I am not ready for school to be over. Ha!
Next week I will be planting my seeds so stay tuned and feel free to follow me over on Instagram for peeks into my planting! Meanwhile, enjoy the picture below of the gorgeous pink blooms on the trees in our front side yard! Spring is in full bloom here in Colorado.
After taking last week off, this past Thursday I returned to Amazon for a fun livestream. Did you happen to catch it? If not, no worries you can use this link to re-watch it. I shared some of my recent Amazon faves including the new seeds I am planning to use in our raised flower beds along with my favorite fertilizer. Of course I shared some wonderful home decor too.
I’m thinking that I will be going to only Thursdays for now and skipping my Saturday lives. Life is getting busy and with summer approaching I want to be able to enjoy my family and time with them.
Also, if you haven’t hit the follow button over on my livestream channel I would be grateful if you would! You can use this link! Thank you!
