Surviving my life as Mom...

It has been waaaaaay too long since I have taken the time to sit down & unload my brain a bit.

Real life has a times become quite real the last few months.  Being a stay-at-home mom already makes me very happy, but it has put my family on a very fixed income the last few years.  But through all of this we have gotten ourselves in a much better position for the upcoming year.  My husband works very hard to accomplish this for us & we are hoping to see the light at the end of the tunnel very soon.  We have been riding the struggle bus so long, but we always make it through.  Having the support of friends & family definitely helps!

Ok, enough about my struggles...
We all have them!

The last 6 months have been quite busy.  LOTS of weddings...
(I will be posting pictures in upcoming posts)
  • A good friend got married & had a destination wedding.  (At the same beach I did 2 years ago.  What can I say, we love Sandbridge) I did her flowers & decor for the wedding.
  • My brother-in-law got married to an awesome gal I am honored to call my sister.  I spent a week in Ohio helping them get ready before the wedding.  All hands on deck & the brides vision came together beautifully.
  • I also got to do my first order for artificial wedding bouquets!  I was VERY excited & loved doing it.  More importantly, the bride loved them.

I have also started to do some custom decorations.   
Here are a few of my creations

Fall Centerpiece
I couldn't resist that cute little Scarecrow

Door Wreath
I must say, I am loving that sprig of orange & red!

I have a few orders for Christmas that will keep me busy the next couple weeks.  I really enjoy decorating.  I am OBSESSED with re-using jars right now! Feeling very ambitious this holiday season, so stay tuned for some DIY ideas to get your home ready for the holidays.

Have a super day!
