Happy AUGUST and welcome to Thursday Favorite Things! I am thrilled to celebrate my FIFTH year co-hosting this fabulous weekly link party for bloggers and blog readers with Katherine of Katherine’s Corner and a fantastic group of bloggers! We recently celebrated the 600th TFT! Please hop over to Katherine’s after linking up to congratulate her on the milestone and to thank her for starting this wonderful party.
NOTE: The party time has changed to 9:00 a.m. MDT (11:00 EST)
If you would like to make some new friends, grow your blog audience, or just find some weekly inspiration, this is the place to be! *Bloggers: Please leave a comment with the number of your link up for a chance to be featured at next week’s party. The hosts are all looking forward to what you’ll share this week! (If you missed the last party and the AWESOME features, you’ll find it here. Here’s what I have been up to:
My husband and I had a wonderful 4 day trip to the beach! It was a much needed rest from the renovations on our new home, but we are already back at it. It won’t be finished in time for school to start or for a “reveal” until my fall home tour in September, but we are starting to move some things in this weekend!
I really had planned on working on an update post while the beach, but I really felt like it was more important to be in the moment and spend time with my huband without thinking about any kind of responsibilities at all. I will do my best to share some updates this week.
even though we still have so much to finish before I can actually decorate for late summer and early fall, I am planning to brighten up the kitchen-in-progress with some sunny sunflowers this week. My Summer to Fall Decorating with Sunflowers post is full of the most beautiful inspiration for decorating this time of year.
