I can’t believe it’s officially summer! While fall truly has my heart I’ve never been so excited about summer as I have this year! My husband is finally back home from deployment, praise the Lord! So of course this summer is an extra special one for us but there is a sweetness about summertime.
While I was nesting and preparing for Cora Beth I got a little diy crazy! But in my swollen, exhausted pregnant self I had NO energy to blog so I’m finally getting around to sharing the smaller details of her nursery! While most of Cora Beth’s clothes are kept in her dresser I keep her nicer outfits in her closet! And I wanted some dividers to help separate the sizes but I didn’t want to buy any so I created these printable nursery closet dividers! The floral ones were made to go with Cora Beth’s floral nursery but I didn’t want to forget the boy mamas! Fingers crossed I’ll get to use the boy ones one day!
Have you ever seen the meme on Facebook that says “when your mom deserves an island but you can afford a candle”? It makes me giggle but it’s SO true! Moms really are the best! I don’t feel like there’s anything I could do to show my mom just how much she means to me. I made this free printable Mother’s Day card so that maybe you can put your $5 toward a gift instead of a card (why are they so expensive now?) for your awesome mom!
I am a homebody by nature. Anyone else? When I was working each morning I remember I wanted nothing more than to be able to stay home and sleep in! Now that I’m a stay at home mom and get to (well not sleep in but stay home) I find myself wanting so badly to leave the house some days. I’m more than grateful that I get to stay home and since leaving the house takes as much effort as moving a mountain these days we often do! Isn’t funny though how it works, you always want what you don’t have!
This warm spring weather has me making all the heart eyes at the flowers for sale outside home improvement and grocery stores. I’m normally such a fall and winter person but within days of having Cora Beth in November I was wishing for warmer weather! Being cooped up inside with a newborn can make you a little stir crazy, I just wanted to go to the grocery store without having to dress us both in a million layers!
It’s the last day of September and it’s finally starting to feel like fall in middle Tennessee, although, I won’t hold my breath as the temperature is likely to spike back up! And at the end of this post I have some free fall art prints for you!
Fall is my favorite season. Pumpkin flavored everything, soup in the crockpot, light jackets, windows open, the leaves change into gorgeous oranges, reds, and yellows! It’s just the best! And I’m so thankful that God allows for new seasons, not just in the weather though but in life as well.
In July we hopped on the trend train and had a gender reveal party! Some people think they’re over done now but I think they’re fun! We also had a dual purpose with ours as it was also an opportunity for family and friends to give their well wishes to my husband before he left to serve our country, which is how our gender reveal got its patriotic theme!
Just as I promised on Instagram last week, here’s a new free art print! I actually had a friend request it for her home (I hope you’re enjoying it April!) and I decided to share it with my lovely readers as well! You can download it at the end of this post!
I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful! Thank you for letting me take a week and a half off for my mission trip (post coming soon) and then to get my life back to normal! I’m still in the process of finishing up decorating for Christmas but cross your fingers and your toes I’ll be able to show you on Monday! To hold you over until then I’ve created a free printable for you!
