I have hesitated writing about the economy even though it is on my mind a lot. It is such a downer and I want my blog to be a place that inspires, uplifts and sometimes provides an escape from the humdrum. I have also hesitated writing about my husbands cancer, also a downer, but on my mind a lot.
We all need things to look forward to. But with so much uncertainty about the future, both personally and for our country, I think it is going to be the little things that get me through. For many of us, big projects and plans have been put on hold. But that doesn't mean that life comes to a screeching hault. There are still so many simple and creative ways to add warmth and character to our homes with out spending a lot of money. That is the message in the ad and the reason why I love it.
I have really loved blogging about my remodel. You have all added so much to the process. I hope that you will continue to read and leave comments as I shift priorities a bit. I want to continue to bring you awesome home renovation ideas and walk you though my friend Rebecca's project, because it is awesome. But I also want to bring you ideas for simpler protects - like where to pick out pumpkins this year. And with the holidays right around the corner, there will be a lot of great gift ideas and decorating tips to share with you.
There are many things to look forward to right now. We just got a new puppy, we are going to teach our son to ski this winter, the house needs lots of little touches that I could spend hours obsessing over, Christmas will not kick my butt this year! and of course, my husband will recover from cancer.
Let's hear from you- what are you looking forward to this year?
