SUNDAY INSPIRATION: Be Brave

LOVE LETTERS TO HOME.

I am so grateful to have the opportunity to write another Sunday Inspiration post. It has been awhile and I really have missed the time to reflect on some really amazing quotes (I have a whole stash on my desktop!). I think for a long time in my life I had a problem being brave. Being brave scared me because I didn’t know what would come of it, what would come of me speaking my mind, doing something I had never done before, or facing something extremely difficult or painful. I was afraid of being brave, I knew I was capable of being brave, I was just too afraid to try. I have realized this really isn’t any way to live! I want the ability to deal, fix, tackle any challenges that come my way and not shy away from fixing anything. Now that I have the ability to pray for braveness I no longer worry about what might come my way, I know that I can always ask for what I need and I will receive it. Everything we need we already have within us, and that is an extremely beautiful realization for me.

INSTAPOST: Renovation Update

So of course this water heater flood has really turned our home upside down! Thankfully I have the most handy man in the world who has decided to take on all of these major renovations (by himself!) in order to make us the most beautiful home. (okay be warned this may be kind of a bragging post because I feel so lucky right now!) The past two weeks David has finished all of the drywall that needed to be done, ripped up all of our baseboards, and has removed almost all the tile on our first floor! Here are some photos of the damage…

The next steps include removing the last layer of grout and remove the tile from our downstairs powder room, paint, then we (and by this I mean David) can start laying hardwood floors! Slowly but surely this place will become less dusty and more like our dream home! I am just so grateful for David’s insanely amazing work ethic!a
