A Letter of Gratitude

Hi friends! I'm so glad you're here.  I can't tell you enough how thankful I am for your support and love. Our sweet boy turned three years old over the weekend.  Yes we had a small celebration, and yes I'm going to share it with you - in a few days!  You won't want to miss it because a) it's super fun, and b) I'm sharing the cutest things I got for the pups and where you can get your own! As for today, in honor of our birthday boy, I'm sharing my letter of gratitude.

10 ways to make your house a home.

You don’t realize just how much you appreciate ‘home’ until you’re not there for a few days.

While at home on normal days, we tend to get stressed out with the fact that our houses aren’t perfect.  We always have things we’d like to change or update.  There’s always cleaning to be done. Laundry.  Oh laundry.

But why?  Why can’t we just enjoy home as it is?

Remember a couple weeks ago when I wrote about our morning wedding and brunch reception?

After that post, I had a lot people asking about the wedding coffee mug story. So today I am sharing a brief version of our story and some tips on painting your own coffee mugs!

Let me guess, you have a ton of Pinterest boards full of wedding ideas. Your head is spinning with all of the possibilities.  You made a spreadsheet for your budget.  You've started to think about who all will be involved in the big day.  You’ve considered a destination wedding.

Decorating for Christmas with an 'under construction' home.

Decorating for Christmas with an 'under construction' home.

Ah, it’s Monday.

Can we have Thanksgiving every week?  I really enjoyed my time off.  It was the perfect combination of home projects, Christmas decor, family, food and relaxation.

Last Wednesday was my day to do all things Christmas.  If you missed my post about holiday storage, find it here.

If you were following me on Instagram (greywoodmama), you saw a few shots of my Christmas tree coming together.  Although our house is still under construction, I was not going to let that stop me from decorating for Christmas.

How to make a 'Greyt' bandana.

Every pup needs a cute bandana. Or a few cute bandanas.

As a young girl, I had an interest in sewing, embroidering and crocheting – only because my grandma was always doing one of the three. She would often let me mess around with the sewing machine, try a few stitches on her crochet project or embroider a few towels. It was always fun while it lasted, but I never ‘mastered’ any of them.
