This week sent me back to work again, after a wonderful 2 weeks off filled with family time.
My mama/Gigi heart was so happy to get to have all of my people around 2 weekends in a row— Christmas weekend, and again on New Year’s weekend. What a gift.
New Year’s Eve was so fun eating appetizers and snacks, playing games, and just enjoying the time together. We combined NYE with a little celebration for my son who just finished up some additional schooling and will begin a new job in a few days.
Apparently, I was enjoying myself so much that I took very few pictures. This one of our sweet baby eating breakfast on New Year’s Day is precious though, don’t you think?
What a Year
Friday, January 6 is always an emotional day for me. This year marked the 5-year anniversary of my mom’s passing.
But, it’s also a day for some celebration now, too. January 6th also marked the one-year anniversary of our miracle girl coming home from the hospital.
One year ago, she came home from the hospital with a feeding tube, and concerns that she may never be able to eat on her own. Now, she eats like any other 1-year-old.
She’s a tough little fighter and has been from day one. She still goes to therapy several times a week- physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy–but this kid keeps proving people wrong over and over.
Not a day goes by that I don’t thank God for the miracle of this baby and the joy she’s brought to all of us. 🙏🏻 ❤️
In Case You Missed It…
My son and his girlfriend recently moved into a beautiful new 3-story townhome. Like many young couples just starting out, their living room had only the necessities— a comfy leather reclining sofa, and a giant TV. 😜
Plus, they also send along this stunning Ulubey Area Rug that I put in my own living room. Check out the reel below to see the full room tour.

I also got all my Christmas decor packed away this week. The house always feels a bit stark afterward, so I created a few displays using my favorite twinkling fairy lights to help us make the transition. You can see them HERE in this reel:
