DIY Colorfull Chalkboard Calendar


Do you keep a calendar up to date?!

I mean really, do you cross off each day after it has passed?
Do you flip the calendar after each month?

I want to say yes to all of these!  I really do! 

Sometimes I can't even remember what day of the week it is let alone the date..... I need help, hahaha  

As I continue on ward and upward towards better organization and a more functional life I decided it was time to actually keep a calendar.   Meet my DIY colorful chalkboard calendar.  

I hope I am not the only one out there who still loves chalkboards!!

I haven't found the perfect spot in my home for this yet, but be on the look out for it.

Spring Mantel 2015



Gosh it seems like a long time since I shared my mantel with you.  Today I want to show you my Spring Mantel for this year!! 

I picked up these old windows from the family farm last year.  These babies are the real deal, old.  I love that the paint on them is original. I did not do anything to them, other than clean them off.  

I originally tried to use a wet paper towel to wipe them down and clean them.
  It was not working.  At all.
The paper towel was getting snagged on the rough paint and wood pieces.  I ended up putting them right in the shower and hosing them off.  Our shower head has one of those long hose attachments, it worked wonderfully.  

You might have noticed that long black cord hanging down from the ceiling....

The Day We Found Out.....


My hands are shaking as I write this…  

You see, I have a secret.

It is a secret that very few people know.  I don't know why I haven't told very many people. I guess it is because its personal, and personal stories can be hard to tell.

I feel like the time has come for me to share.  Maybe, hopefully, it can help someone else.  

It was a June afternoon in 2010.  We were living in sunny southern California.  We enjoyed going to the beach and Disney Land.  We loved that we could go swimming in the pool in February, especially since we were used to the cold Utah winters.  

It was amazing.   




All except for one thing.  There was a deep dark pit within my soul that could not be healed or mended.
