For the first time since I started this blog, I had a week of unannounced silence. I love blogging. It’s fulfilling a need in me for expression. It’s a much-needed hobby. It’s just plain fun. So, I find myself writing often, if not daily.
But this week was different. We had the joy of friends traveling to visit us for the week. They came with the goals to hang out and help out and those goals were definitely accomplished! Although I failed to get a picture of the four of us, I did get pictures of our precious daughters.
And, I got pictures of some of the spaces we organized (though we organized more and I really wish I had before pictures so you could appreciate the transformation!):
My friend, Lynn, admits to loving taking a messy space and making it functionally organized. I, on the other hand, admit to making things messy! (Especially lately, with so much less energy.) She was a huge help and motivation. When I was tired, she brought things to the bed for us to organize. When I was emotionally attached to pants that should have been retired years ago, she didn’t budge on her stance to give them away. She was just what I, and this house, needed.
And the games . . . you know we love good game nights! Once the girls went to bed, we played games until we couldn’t hold our eyes open any more (which the first night was 9:30, I’m sad to say!)
Thank you, Dustin, Lynn and Corinne for a great week! We wish you could stay forever!
And now you know why my “blog silence” was golden.
