Hello, friends! How many times have you winced or rolled your eyes when someone said, "The days are long, but the years are short"? Well, that may seem corny, but it seems like 2023 is just getting started, and here we are at the halfway point. Whew!
I'm truly grateful that you've taken a moment to visit me here. I'm proud to host this weekly gathering called Grace at Home, where we celebrate all the ways we make our homes places of grace and beauty.
Here are some highlights from last week's party.
Do you love a good before-and-after? Then you should check out the dining room makeover from Diane at South House Designs.
Need a small project to brighten up these hot summer days? Julie from My Wee Abode shows you how to create a container garden.
Sometimes having the kids home all day every day can make a parent despair of trying to make a beautiful home. Kathryn from The Dedicated House has some tips for combining a child's needs and a parent's desire for a lovely space.
Looking for an easy and fun treat for July 4? Alea from Premeditated Leftovers has the solution!
Do you struggle with anxiety? In the wake of a global pandemic, I think many of us do. Maria from Krafty Planner has found help in Bible journaling, and she offers a great list of prompts to help with finding peace.
And now back to my introduction of how quickly the days go by. I think you'll find great food for thought in this post from Lisa: "How Are the Changing Times Changing You?"
