It is officially summer and this summer is better than ever! I have wanted to tackle our dock project for the longest time and now I can say it was worth the wait. The original dock was over thirty years old and it had stories to tell but it was more than time for a new book to be written.
Mardi Gras truly tops as one of my favorite celebrations of all! The explosion of colors within masks, beads and celebrations all add up to the epitome of grandeur decorating! While participating in a Mardi Gras parade this weekend, I complimented a woman on her over-the-top festive attire and she so perfectly stated that it is the one time a year you can pull out all of your insane and quite possibly borderline tacky boxes of treasures and wear them proudly … it is so true! While adorning ourselves in the outrageous to entertain parade watchers, it is a completely different story within Home with Sparkle.
As the Thanksgiving holiday comes to an end, I find myself purposefully slowing down to reflect on all the beauty of fall and one of my newest as well as oldest traditions. Instead of rushing into your Christmas decorations I invite you to pause with me to reflect also.
Our Thanksgiving was filled with family and friends from close and afar. Each and every one of of them was welcomed into our home and we could not be more excited and grateful to greet them at our front door.
