How does one start up with a blog again after absolutely no posts for an entire year? I don't know, but here we go...
So much and nothing really happened in the last year. I blinked my eyes and my son graduated from Kindergarten last may and started the first grade yesterday, my daughter is now walking, and my husband and I celebrated our 11 year anniversary. We still live in a little town on the prairie. I still go to the gas station across the street nearly every day to have some sort of social interaction outside of the house. Since we moved to a tiny town in the the sticks where we do not know anyone, speaking to other living, breathing adults face to face seems almost luxurious.
But that will all change in the coming year as we are building a house in my home town next summer. I am very excited, very anxious, and completely obsessed with every tiny detail! So for the past few months I have been quietly scouring home decor blogs and magazines, getting ideas, trying to pin down my style.
Looking back at some of my old posts is kind of funny. Chiavari chairs? Really? I did not end up buying those, don't worry. Every time I see them on a movie, in a magazine, at a wedding I kind of cringe at the thought that I told the whole world that I wanted them for my dining room table!
I will soon have some updates about some of the other furniture makeovers that I have done, and what I have learned in the past year, like when it is OK to use latex when painting furniture, and when it absolutely is not, and why.
So, if anyone is out there reading this, thank you! I can't promise that I will be posting often, but I will try not to go a year between posts again. ;)
