life timeout.

I cannot believe it has been almost 6 weeks since I last posted. The summer is flying by!

1a01351fbe2c29940c5395ba00dede6dThe last few weeks have been full of challenges that required my full attention, so I took a “time out” from life. What I mean by that is I needed down time to spend alone, with my amazing hubby and with family & friends. I feel grateful to have the ability to recognize when I need that down time and how to experience it wholeheartedly, without guilt or shame. Life is full of ups & downs, we all deal with issues differently depending on what it may be. Knowing when you need some down time is the best gift you can provide yourself. That same ability is a sign of personal strength, you are strong enough to admit when you need a few more quiet moments. The last few weeks were also an opportunity for me to really appreciate who and what I had in my life, I have never felt more grateful.

Now, moving on from that philosophical opening!

Great news, our kitchen is ALMOST done! I can’t wait to show all of you photos, I am in love with how it turned out. AND… I can’t wait to show you what can be done to transform a kitchen for less than $5,000. You don’t need a huge budget to give a kitchen a complete overhaul! (…and I don’t mean painting the cabinets either!)

Stay tuned! Renovation reveals, DIY projects, recipes, workouts and reflection posts coming up! 🙂
