Hi friends! I have been missing you!

Life – and summer – is moving a million miles an hour, and I am trying to be so intentional about what matters most. I see my kiddos growing up before my eyes, and even thought I homeschool them and get to BE with them A LOT, I still see the clock spinning faster and faster. My oldest just turned 11, and suddenly, I have a TWEEN! A middle school boy. Hold me.

I have been pouring a lot of my creative energies into parenting lately. You certainly do need to get more creative as your kids get older, can I get an Amen? Our summer has been busy, but without much structure, mostly thanks to our fabulous kitchen project and some traveling adventures…. oh, and potty training.  Also, we are a mostly screen-free household (I know. I am crazy!), so I spend much of my time redirecting my kiddos into good activities and projects. I know most of you don’t come to this blog for parenting anecdotes, but this is SO where I am right now. Just pouring into my kiddos. I want to give them the BEST of me, not the leftovers. This discipline has resulted in me being offline a lot more….

all this to say, I miss you!

And yet….. In my off moments, ;) , I sneak in some kitchen designing! I pour through Pinterest and find rooms that make my heart sing. That is definitely my momma time! My summer evening habit has included a piece of chocolate, a glass of wine, a fire pit, and some Pinterest browsing. Now, doesn’t that sound delightful!?

Anyway, loves, here are some pics from our kitchen renovation. Starting with the oldest, and ending with a pic that was just taken yesterday. Welcome to our crazy:













I will keep the pics coming when I can! In the meantime, know that you are missed.

I will catch on Instagram in the meantime!!

In fact, I should have a brand new pic up on there sometime today that is not shown here in this post. See you there!!
