I love goal planning and making resolutions just like you, but have you stopped and celebrated the year we just finished? Have you paused to reflect on those days, and express gratitude for what you accomplished, experienced, and cultivated?
Today, I’m going to share with you a quick and easy photo challenge, to help you relive this past year. Can I encourage you, sweet friend, to then print these photos or add them to a photo book? I’ll show you how in this post. Let’s take some time right now to celebrate 2017 & add photos of our lives into our homes, shall we?
Binge watching ‘Fixer Upper’ on Saturday mornings has become a new favorite in our home. Even my husband watches the show with me!! He and I both get a kick out of Chip’s shenanigans, and I’m practically drooling by the end of each show looking at Jo’s beautiful designs.
Chip and Jo Jo are definitely #marriagegoals, aren’t they? I love how they can be goofy with each other, yet parent their children gracefully and run an enormous business together flawlessly.
I think Joanna and I would be quick friends, and I’d be lying if I didn’t say I’ve day dreamed of sitting on their farmhouse porch, sipping sweat tea with her, devouring some cupcakes, and talking about everything home and family. And, in this elaborate day-dream, I see Chip and Adam wrangling the cattle out in the pasture…Adam getting his inner cowboy on. Those 2 goofballs would be knee-deep in mud, while Joanna and I shared stories around her kitchen island with subway tile and greenery in the background.
I guess I’ve thought about this more than I realized! Ha!
This adorable family has graced our television so often, that they feel like close friends. So, it’s no surprise that when I heard this week that this upcoming season of Fixer Upper will be their last, I was sad. Actually, ‘sad’ is an understatement.
But, if there’s anything that we have learned from Chip & Jo, it would be that family comes first. Not even a popular HGTV show will cause them to compromise their family values. And, I don’t know about you, but for me it just causes me to love them more.
So, today I’d love to share with you 5 Things I Learned About Marriage from this amazing, God-fearing couple. What a powerful testimony our marriage can be…
Hygge is a way of life, that is embraced in Denmark, where according to various studies, people are happier than anywhere else in the world. By creating warm, cozy homes, celebrating the season, unplugging from technology, and connecting with loved ones and nature, the Danish have learned to live a satisfied and fulfilled life.
I decided to investigate the Hygge way of living, and what I discovered is simple and doable. It’s these simple steps that help the Danish actually enjoy their long winters, and embrace each season of life.
