All Things Vintage

I just looked at my calendar and saw the date.

August 19th

Omgoodness, the last few weeks have been a whirlwind and I am trying to get my head on straight.

I’m not complaining by any means! Life is full and I am thankful for that! It’s reminding me to count my blessings and not to begrudge them!

Let me just recap in case you are interested:

  • July 20-24 traveled to Atlanta GA for a blogging conference and learned a ton of great information that will help me to bring you better content
  • July 24-29 traveled home from the conference and enjoyed vacation time with my hubby (you can watch this YouTube video about our vacation and some of the thrifting we did!)
  • our second grandbaby was born while we were traveling home – he was three weeks early and is doing great after a two-week stay in the NICU!!
  • that sweet bundle was born while we were in crazy Friday traffic in the DC area, and I was crying tears of joy and showed my hubby his pic on my phone….we missed our turn! no biggie, it only changed our ETA by 10 minutes thanks to navigation!
  • we are closing our vendor booth at the end of August and the 50% off sale is keeping us hopping – everything is almost gone
  • blogging, blogging, blogging! I love my job 🙂
  • spent one week with the new bundle when he came home from the NICU 🙂
  • back home and making new plans for the upcoming season of full-time blogging!

Let me say this again – I’m not complaining about the busyness of life! These are all blessings and I am grateful!!

fall weekend shopping

Has fall been on your mind lately? It has been on my mind and I am wanting to spruce up our home for the autumn season.

Have you seen the amazing fall home decor at Target this year? Here are just a few of the home decor pieces I’ve come across. Some of these are in my Target shopping cart now!

Gathered are linens for your kitchen, candles, pillows, a couple of throw rugs, and faux florals. You can shop these items by clicking the images!
