A Pretty Little Makeover and Upcoming Fun

Helllllooooo blog friends!

After a little hiatus I am so glad to be back here 

in my happy little place!

SOOOOO…

Shine Your Light recently hit the FIVE YEAR mark!!

(I can hardly believe this little baby of mine is five. Where do the years go?)

To celebrate I thought it was high time for a fun blog refresh.

What do you think about my new look?

I worked with Emily at Designer Blogs to customize one her pre made designs and love what she did!
The price (that included installation!) 
was great and there were so many pretty designs to choose from.
For a girl like me that likes to change up this space every now and again this was the perfect way to go.
Thanks so much Emily!!
A few changes on the horizon…..
I’m really excited to share more on the blog about my interior styling business that has really blossomed over the past year or so. More on Shine Design services and projects coming soon!
The “Project Gallery” link in the nav bar will take you to a newly reorganized page that includes art projects, furniture makeovers, DIY decor projects and home improvements, gardening and outdoor space ideas, crafty fun, holidays and season, tips and tricks that include a lot of the Quick Tip Tuesdays, and Shine Kids, which are fun ideas for the munchkins’ entertainment.
I will be continuously adding to these galleries, and I’ll also post a tutorial for setting up a gallery on your own blog if you don’t have one yet (a suggestion our lovely friend Jennifer gave me ages ago and I promise I will do it soon!)
A new home tour is coming too!
In addition to our five year blogiversary, 
as of August 1 my family will have lived in our diamond in the rough for 5 years!
I’ll be posting room updates over the summer.
Our house is EONS away from finished but I hope by posting our progress it might inspire someone else out there to tackle a not so pretty space and make it a little more lovely.
It feels like we have miles to go until this house is everything we envisioned it could be, but when I look back at where we started five summers ago, the Peach Pit has come a long way baby!!!!
Also coming up…… 
(thanks to an informal poll of some long time readers, also known as friends that tell you straight up, 
“if I go onto your blog one more time and see the Herb Markers at the top of the page, our friendship is over”)
more easy peasy ways to update your home
more artsy projects for the non-artists out there
more thrift store furniture makeovers
more quick tips and tricks 
more fun summer appies and desserts
more mocktails and cocktails!!
 What else would YOU like to see on here?
It’s truly a JOY 
amidst the busy-ness of our day-to-day tasks, 
and the chaos of our world,
to visit with you here and talk about house and home, family and fun, adventures and amusements,
and all the little things that bring happiness to our lives.
I am looking forward to the next chapter here at Shine Your Light 
and I am SO GLAD AND GRATEFUL that you join me to 
seek out the bright side of life!
Cheers to a great week ahead lovelies!
