Welcome back to our DIY/Craft Link Up Party! Thank you for stopping by every week!
Today’s Feature is DIY Board and Batten by Repurpose and Upcycle.
This weekend we celebrated my birthday with family and friends. It was a lot of fun. 🙂
We had a signature cocktail, which was a Rose lemonade and even a cupcake tower from Jilly’s with monogrammed cupcakes. I have been reflecting on the last 10 years and all that has happened in them… It is amazing how much can change in 10 years and I’ve also been wondering about what will change in the next 10 years. Life is beautiful, yet can be hard sometimes, too. I just try to make the most of it and to learn and grow each day along the way. My 30’s were some of the best days of my life, but also some of the hardest. Although, I feel as though I know a lot more than I did in my 20’s! I think I am finally ready for my 40’s, although I’ve been wanting to avoid the thought for quite some time. People either tell me that it is the new 20’s or that it’s on the other side. I think somedays I believe the first one and other days I believe the second one. I guess it depends on what mood I am in! 😉 Shay on Mix and Match Mama was just talking about blogging for 10 years in THIS post and just how much has changed in her life in that time. It really got me thinking about just how long 10 years is and how so many changes do happen. Such a beautiful post by her… if you don’t follow her blog, you should. Her blog is one of my faves.
Ok, enough about my birthday party. We also did a lot of other things last week! Last Sunday, Brian’s cousin Alan and his new wife Hannah came in town to go to a Cardinals game with us. We also had dinner at Cooperhawk’s. It was a great time!
Autumn had dance camp for 3 full days this last week. She learned a lot! She will be starting choreography summer classes on Monday.
While Autumn was in dance camp, I got some one on one time with Nathan! He spent one day at my parents house, we went to Whole Foods and bowling and we also visited the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Nathan said it was some of his favorite days this summer, hanging with me! Aw!
When Autumn was done with camp, we decided to do something fun with my parents. We went to the Soulard Market and also out to lunch at Joanies Pizza in Soulard. It was a lot of fun. I brought home so much fresh produce, fresh baked bread, desserts and even flowers for my party. Such a fun day! We need to make this a summer tradition!
Now the kids are on their LAST week (plus 2 bonus days) of school. Crazy. I am really sad about it. How did the summer go by so fast?!
