.August Updates.

It's been 3 weeks since my last post--curious why? 

Well, I was on a role posting during the month of July and when I shared my plastic spoon mirrors something happened--something BIG.

You liked it! 

You commented, you sent emails, you featured it, you pinned it, you followed my blog! The truth is I was so overwhelmed (in a really good way) by the love shown to me that I have been a bit intimidated to write a new post..I did not want to let you down..

Does that make sense? 

It's kind of funny, silly, and pathetic all at the same time. Oh well, that's me.


I'm back with a little life update and will share more DIY projects soon :)

The past three weeks have been family filled and you know what?--It was amazing! Living away from loved ones is always a struggle so whenever we get the chance to spend good quality time together, we take advantage!

Our first stop was Chesapeake, VA to visit my brother Scott, sister-in-law Kim, and niece Emma. We had an incredible weekend together:
- Trip to the aquarium
- Meals together
- Watching Olympics
- Playing with Emma

My little niece is not yet two and had Adam and I amazed at her skills. Emma knows her entire alphabet and sings the song proudly. She can also identify animals, colors, and even a few numbers! It's  pretty awesome watching my big bro be such a loving daddy to his little girl. Scott and Kim are definitely doing something right--Emma is such a sweet and smart girl, missing her already!


This past weekend (thurs-mon) my parents and grandparents came to our house in Lynchburg to visit!

It was the first time my grandparents have been to our new house and the first for our parents since Christmas--Adam and I were eager to show everyone the updates on the house. In preparation for their arrival, I went a little crazy with cleaning and yard work but the end result made everyone smile, including me so it was worth the effort :)

We had a nice time eating meals and playing games together--we are a big card playing family when our grandparents are around. Ever play international rummy? It's an awesome hour long game which always includes coffee, dessert, music, and laughter for our family.
Have you spent any time with family this summer? I'd love to read about it :)

Take care!


  1. Glad to have you back! Just post about the real you! That's what we love ;) This update was perfect!

  2. Your inspiring! I'm in the process of completing my spoon mirror! I don't have a blog yet but in the works of getting one started! When you mentioned Chesapeake I squealed because I work there! I was almost starstruck! I admire your faith and praise the Lord I found your blog! Keep on posting!

  3. I don't know if you have ever watched Craft Wars on TLC but I think you would be perfect! Keep doing what you're doing!
