Hello and happy Saturday Friends! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? We have a few barbeques to attend and a birthday to celebrate.
I know it’s been a heavy week for our country and if you are like me, you are heartbroken. I don’t have all the answers, but I am still choosing to turn to the one who does.
When we have no words, we can speak the Lord’s over ourselves and those we love. “He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds.” Psalm 147:3

Happenings at Home
Did you hear? This past Wednesday was the last day of school and my last day of teaching.
Gosh that feels so weird to write.
I know I have been sharing about it here on the blog with you all for a while now, but it’s still sinking in a bit. I have been teaching for 20 years! If you follow me over on Instagram, you may have seen my stories as I was leaving my classroom.
It was bittersweet for sure.
I loved my school and teammates and staff (our youngest still goes there) but the Lord has made it very clear that it is time for me to move on. And that means I will be doing a whole lot more blogging! I am so excited!!!
Can You Answer This for Me?
So this coming Tuesday, I am hosting a workshop all about how to create a container garden without worrying what plants to pick. If this sounds interesting to you, you can find out more information or sign up HERE.
But if that’s not your thing or maybe you just want to learn or have some help in other areas, I would love to know!
Can you help answer this for me (reply in the comments or reply to any of my emails) what would you like to see here on the blog or from me in the future?
- Workshops/posts on decorating
- How to curate a collected home, shopping guides, etc.
- Gardening tips
- Painting tips
- DIY projects
- Budget Friendly decorating tips
- More free printables
- Any ideas for me that I didn’t list?
I really appreciate you leaving me your feedback! I am so excited to dive into this full time and I want to share what you want to see!
Links and Loves
This past week was crazy busy with me wrapping up my school year and moving out of my classroom…yet I still found some great links and loves to share with you all!
