Weekend Reading

Hello friends, hope you’re enjoying the holiday season! I took long detour last night to look at all the Christmas lights on neighbors houses, isn’t that one of the *best* things about this time of year? I so appreciate all the people who take the time to embellish their homes to bring cheer to their neighborhoods!

I’ve got most of my holiday shopping done, and I’m working on a room makeover too. I’m updating the downstairs study so it’s a more functional space for our teens to do homework as they go through high school. I ordered a new rug, desk chairs, and a modern light fixture. I hope to finish the space by the end of the month to kick off their spring semester, and I’ll share that update soon!
