My New Design Style Inspiration?

Over a year ago, my home decor changed from an eclectic mix of antique and country style furnishings to a much younger and minimal type style.  My husband and I were empty nesters.  Just the two of us and our dogs, Maggie and Phoebe.  Life changes sometimes.  Our pug, Phoebe had to be put down.  Sad, but necessary. Then, two of our grandchildren moved in with us and we became their guardians.  It is a long story of why and how.  Their mom visits them often (most of the time).  We want them to know they are very loved!  They make us laugh almost every day for some reason or another!  

We do have a lot of fun, but it is really hard to parent and be a grandparent at the same time.  I do miss the part where you spoil them and send them home!  

We are learning some really interesting things!  

The hugs, kisses, and snuggles are wonderful!  The temper tantrums, sick days, and going through potty training are not as wonderful, but the other perks make up for it.  

Someday, we will get back to getting some home decor projects started again.  Right now, we are learning our ABC's, reading Dr. Suess, coloring, and singing," Jesus Loves Me"!  We are so blessed that He does!
