Happenings at Home
Well it was a crazy busy week here at home. Colorado has had some crazy high temps all week but that sure hasn’t stopped us .
Crosby attended Camp Timberline’s day camp and we hosted two of their counselors. These young ladies are amazing and what a blessing it was to have them stay with us. If you saw my IG stories you know I was looking for gluten free recipes and options for them. Well thanks to you all and my IG buddies I was able to find some great recipes and a ton of options at Trader Joe’s! Next summer both Grace and Crosby will be going to overnight camp! A bit sad that this week is over.
We also had our first reservation booked for our home over on Home Studio Listing! Oh my word it was a crazy but good experience. I have shared a little bit about this before but basically our home is listed to rent hourly for photoshoots and creative productions.
This may not be for everyone but with our home having some unique features and me liking to decorate I thought, why not? It’s also another great stream of revenue for my now full time blogging gig!
The people who rented our home rented it for 10 hours between Monday and Tuesday and shot a mini documentary series as well as a Chevy commercial! I know, crazy, right?! With the counselors staying here let’s just say we had a full house and some interesting schedules those two days. Luckily everyone was flexible I will share the final product with you all after they send it my way!
Then on Thursday Mike and I celebrated 15 years together. It’s feels like it was just yesterday when we got married! Below I will share a sweet picture of us on our wedding day. For those of you who are new around here I not only married Mike but I became a stepmom to two amazing boys. They are 4 and 7 in this picture above and now they are 19 and 22! Our blended family has come so far since 2007 and we also have 2 beautiful girls who are 13 and almost 10. My favorite verse for Mike and I is from Song of Solomon 3:4 ” I have found the one my heart loves.” Without God our story would not be what it is. S0 thankful and blessed everyday.

Coming Up on the Blog
Next week I will be sharing a Christmas in July blog post on Monday. It’s a blog hop with a ton of my favorite bloggers and I promise it will have a ton of inspiration for you.
Think I’m crazy to be thinking about Christmas already? That’s ok, most people think that. You can see my Christmas in July post from last year here. It explains a lot of my thinking.
My goal is to also get my zinnia post out and a post about our Marco Island, FL trip. Since we have been back it’s been hard to get motivated. I’ll get there though! In the mean time enjoy this collage of my zinnias! They are currently huge and all blooming.
Zinnia heaven! My friend Charla from @gardeningwithcharla taught me how and where to cut them so I will continue to get more and more blooms!
