I took a break from blogging the last week and a half to focus on my own head space. My heart is heavy with all that’s going on in our world. I will keep my own politics and beliefs off the blog (for now, at least), but it’s hard to read the news and not be affected. I’ve spent a lot of time wondering how I can protect my own children from things like gun violence. See what I mean? Heavy thoughts and a heavy heart are weighing me down. I will say this, I truly believe if we’re going to change as a society it has to happen from the ground-up. What I mean is those of us like myself, who are quietly living “the American dream”, have to step-up and create change. Okay, I better stop before I do get political.
Onto lighter, brighter topics – my One Room Challenge makeover is coming along. I skipped last week’s update but will be back this week with an amazing progress pic. My husband knocked it out of the park with his contribution. Teamwork for the win!
Now that we’re almost done with this project, it’s making me want to tackle a related one. Painting our two-story foyer. Eeeeeek! I’ve been putting it off because, well, it’s going to be a ton of work (read: money & time). But now that I see how light and bright the mudroom area is, it’s reinforcing how I see yellow undertones whenever I step into the foyer. Is gray on the way out? So much of my home is painted gray, I was thinking of mixing it up in the foyer.
Then I look at inspiration photos like this one, and think, why mess with perfection?
Back Thursday with fun progress pics of the faux mudroom. See ya then!
