Hi friends!! Did you have a great weekend??
I was thinking about those of you who along with me really love tinkering around your house and making things pretty. For many of us our homes are our canvas and we have millions of ideas of things we’d like to do to tweak it.
This weekend we had a houseful of family and it was tons of fun! Even though our house was far from picture perfect…..
……there is still a mountain of mulch on our driveway (along with the wheel barrel)….
……some of the annuals I picked up didn’t get quite get planted (they’re just thrown in the pot for now)…..
…….and our overnight guests had a mirror-less bathroom to use since this baby sat in the hallway all weekend. (yep that’s the mirror I bought for our living room, change of plans, now it’s going in the kids’ bathroom. We fly by the seat of our pants around here.)
The older I get, the more I realize hosting isn’t about having our home look pulled together all the time (although come on – that would be wonderful!!) – it’s about giving our guests an enjoyable experience. And sometimes that means getting done what you can, and then letting go of the things you didn’t and being a warm and gracious host.
Good food, yummy drinks and lots of supermarket flowers can make up for many a house imperfection!!!!
Cute palm pillow above is part of the deck spruce up that didn’t happen quite yet.
Thankfully not getting every single thing crossed off the to-do list does not hinder
hula hoop races….
