Hello, friends! I hope you're doing well here at the end of January.
I'd like to tell you how I'm doing, if you'll permit me to do so with a photo:
That's a very happy new Grandma with her first grandson. I'm so grateful that I've been able to be with my daughter-in-law to help out after Jackson's birth.
And another photo: that's my grandson FaceTiming with his daddy, my oldest son, who is a U.S. Navy aviator and is currently deployed. It tears me up to be here holding this precious baby when I know my son can't be here. If you don't already appreciate the men and women of the armed forces, I ask you to reconsider. They and their families make really big sacrifices.
I'm so grateful you're here today for the Grace at Home party, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace! Here are some highlights from last week's party.

If you're like me, you've been wanting to get more organized this year. Niky from The House on Silverado shows us how to make wheeled crates for organizing the pantry. What a great idea!Estelle at Homemade on a Weeknight.
