Raise your hand if Marie Kondo is suddenly a household name in your home? 🙋🏼‍♀️ I’m sharing this sweet girl’s closet from the #mykiddecor hashtag ‘cause I’m pretty sure Marie would be proud 👏🏻@thevidalnest - you did such a great job on everything! .
.
A flexible goal I set for myself this year is to complete one room/area in the house a month. This month I’m refreshing the girls’ room a bit and this closet is major goals. With 3 girls in a 10’ x 13’ foot room, organization has never been more necessary 🤪

I have very clear memories of going grocery shopping with my mom as a child. My dad had his own after work activities which meant she would take my sister and I with her to the local Albertsons after work. There was no such thing as online ordering or a grocery delivery service. .
.
We’d go up & down every aisle in that store and I remember making up games or playing hide & seek in the toilet paper aisle to keep us occupied 😆 I don’t know how she did it and there were only 2 of us kids. The highlight of the trip was that my sister and I each got to pick out a 5 pc. pack of bubble gum at checkout if we behaved. I looked forward to it each week. I’m sure it was her way of thanking us for not having a meltdown and also a bit of bribery to keep us in check - which worked, most of the time 😉 .
.
If you see a mom in the store with tired, cranky, moody kids - she already feels the weight of everyone looking at her, so give her a smile and tell her she’s doing great. .
.
Today, I’m grateful for a husband who is taking our girls ice skating so I can go solo grocery shopping with coffee in hand. I’m not sure why I haven’t taken advantage of online ordering yet. I guess I’m just old school or think I’ll get crappy produce 👎🏻 or maybe because grocery shopping is actually kind of enjoyable 🤷🏼‍♀️

Do you old school shop like me? Online order & pick-up? Grocery delivery service? .

I am somewhat of a realist & if I can be real with you all, 2018 wasn’t a year of smashing goals, reaching milestones and exceeding the previous year’s income. It was a quiet, reflective, transitional time. And guess what? Those years are still worthy to celebrate!
.
.
For me, 2018 was a year to survive; to just make it through. I’m dang proud I said “It’s not a good time” or “I’m going to focus on me or my family” to the proposals presented and the various ideas that popped into my head. However, in our social media highlight-reel-driven world, it’s tempting to think that my year isn’t worth sharing. I’m not a big numbers person. I secretly despise stats - and even though I *know* they present very valuable information, they don’t show the whole picture. Friends, you are SO MUCH MORE than the sum of money you made, the number on a scale & the amount of followers you have on social media. It’s ok if you didn’t have a record breaking year. You are kind, you are loving, you are capable and you are so many other things that don’t necessarily translate into analytics and algorithms. Don’t you forget it! You can always grow your business, make more money & set new goals, but you can’t get back time so spend it wisely.

Friends, What are you making (or buying) for Christmas morning breakfast?!
.
.
Tomorrow I’ll be prepping our breakfast to make it easy for Christmas Day. A bacon, egg, & cheese casserole and the most delicious low-carb cinnamon rolls are on the menu! Sam and I will have coffee & the girls will have frosted hot chocolates. I love making these new traditions!

“We know that God works all things together for the good of those who love Him...” .
.
Last September we evacuated our family to safety for a major hurricane which eventually led to my husband losing his job. After a few months of applying and searching for jobs, he finally accepted a position that would require a move out of state. We were sad, hopeful, relieved, depressed, excited... basically ALL of the emotions. We said goodbye to our best friends, our families & all that was familiar to us - we had planted deep roots in FL. I did not know WHY this was unfolding the way it was, but I did know WHO was in charge because we had fervently prayed for God’s will in all of this, so for that reason, I never doubted that this is where we were supposed to be. That doesn’t mean I didn’t feel sad or ask why (I still do), but there truly was a peace that surpassed my understanding. .
.

Fast forward to around this time last year, we were just settling our family of 5 into a basement apartment we’d be living in until we could find a home of our own here in GA. The homeowner had put up the sweetest little tree for us. It was a very memorable and humbling Christmas for us.
.
.
For every year before, my husband had to work Christmas Day, but last year we had our FIRST Christmas morning together as a family. And this year, we’ll have Christmas morning together again, but in our own home, with our very own tree and nowhere to be but PRESENT with each other ❤️❤️❤️

The playroom market stand got turned into a holiday gift wrap station a few weeks ago. I just re-stocked it with supplies hoping that the girls will entertain themselves 🤞🏻 for a bit tomorrow while my husband & I knock out some Christmas orders 🎄 .

I know I say it often, but I really am just so grateful for your support of our small business. Thank you for every like, comment, question, purchase, share or word of encouragement. I want you to know that I just genuinely enjoy connecting with you guys ❤️ .

We’ve finished shopping for our girls 🙌🏻 The 4 gift rule makes shopping less stressful & actually quite enjoyable for me since I have a guideline. If you watched my stories a few days ago, you know we do “something they want, something they need, something to make & something to read”. We replaced the popular “wear” with “make” a few years ago because the thing they need is always something they wear anyway. Plus adding a “make” gift adds another fun, creative item to the mix. We also fill their stockings with little trinkets. Stocking were always a favorite part of Christmas morning for me. .

Do you have any certain shopping or gifting traditons?! We used to pick one gift from under the tree that could be opened on Christmas Eve. I’d love to hear yours! . 📷 @pinterest .

It’s feeling a little extra festive in here thanks to my velvet green sofa 💚🌲 Just when I thought about getting something different for this space, I decorate for Christmas and fall in love with it all over again. .
