A home

I used to struggle with finding real value in my work, in design.  At times, it seems frivolous.  Not really important in the eternal.  Honestly, it can be a struggle not to get bogged down in trend.  But, Thanksgiving brought me right again.

I’ve been telling you, but not really showing you the changes to our Stewart Ranchito House (W House Reno).  It’s consumed my thoughts and finances for awhile, and it was all worth it.  To be able to sit down together, our whole extended Mississippi Family and eat, laugh, and comfortably stay together was food for my soul.

When my husband cranked up the music and we all started singing along…pure joy!

So, it may seem silly, but when design ushers in a way for family to get together, Thanksgiving to be a real family event, and one of my dreams to be met, then it’s valuable.

Christmas is coming.  Are you ready?

Jones Design Company has these super cute, free printables for Christmas.  Go check them out!


Are you looking for some fresh encouragement?  I’ve been listening to  The Happy Hour with Jamie Ivey podcast.


I’m hoping to listen to #65 today!

Happy Wednesday!
