Thanksgiving Week!


Happy Monday! I am so excited about this activity packed week ahead. This season is my absolute favorite time of year.

It’s the together-ness that I love and that I crave.

And hospitality too. Having people here makes me happy because that’s what this house knows. Memaw and Granddaddy always welcomed everyone into their home for a meal, for holidays – we used to gather for just about every single holiday imaginable.

These days it’s a bit harder to get everyone together, but we try. And it’s always worth it.

My to-do list is a little daunting this week, so the blog is going to be a bit more quiet than normal. But y’all, it’s the important things that take priority sometimes – family, holidays, traditions, loving on real life people.

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE y’all, my dear blog readers. But I want y’all to be relaxing, off-line and loving on the people around you too. 🙂

This week I will be…

  • decorating
  • shopping
  • cleaning
  • organizing
  • cooking
  • baking
  • loving
  • making my Black Friday shopping list
  • working out {because I don’t need any extra holiday food poundage!}
  • and probably something else {or a million other “something else’s”} that I’m forgetting.

Does your to-do list look something like that?

I am so thankful for each of you who read this lil’ blog. Your comments and emails make me smile big.

I hope you have a wonderful, WONDERFUL week enjoying those closest to you. Be thankful and love BIG!



O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: For his mercy endureth for ever.” Psalm 107:1

  2. Always love your blogs, creativity, awesome ideas & most of all, I so appreciate your expression of love for your family & Our Lord Jesus Christ!!! Happy Thanksgiving & Blessings to you & yours!, Tammy B.

  3. For some reason I started getting your blogs again! I never unsigned nor resigned –there was just a gap. I peeked back on your natural fall mantle and I love how it all looks. It is like getting your grandma’s house has developed your design abilities to look professionally arranged!! Oh I was a naysayer way back when. Please forgive me for I simply love your washed brick. It is so fresh looking!!! And your bedroom view is amazing too

  4. Enjoy your holiday week! Mine sounds similar. Thanks for sharing the scripture, I am going to memorize it.
