Big News

Ok so it’s about time that I spill the beans…I will not be returning to teaching next year. After 20 years of teaching I have decided to take a year off and see if that turns into more .

I will be working on taking care of myself, my family and my relationship with the Lord. It was a hard decision because i love my school and teammates but I really feel like the Lord was saying it was time. My husband and family have been so wonderful in supporting me and this huge decision.

I will also be blogging more which gets me SO excited! I can’t wait to hang out with you all some more!

You can respond either in the comments below or email me over at [email protected]! Really I need your help and ideas as I brainstorm. So no idea is too small and no idea is too big! Ha! I just really appreciate you and your time and your ideas.

Links and Loves

So if you read my Welcome Home Saturday from last week you saw that I linked this dresser that we purchased for Grace’s room. Well it arrived but has been sitting in our garage. Our plan is to put it together tomorrow! It’s no longer on sale though…sorry!

Here are a few other things I am excited to share with you all!

  • Just bought this for our raised garden beds!
  • My daughter got this for her phone and it’s SO cute!
  • This lip mask has been SO good for our dry lips!
  • Crushing on these chairs for the end of our outdoor table!
  • Love this but can’t afford it. A girl can dream!!!!
  • This would be pretty with flowers in it!
