Monthly Report – May 2013

May was one of those months.  One of those really good months.  It was in a small way, a turning point in my life.  In my social life, my home life, my mental life.  Is there such a thing as a mental life?  Well if there is, I turned it around in May.  I have always struggled with things…like most people.  Small things.  Tiny in the grand scheme of things.  But significant enough to add up to bouts of sadness…ruts of insecurity…times of over-questioning, doubting, sinking.  But May, that darling month that promises flowers and sunshine, it was a gentle refreshing wake up call.  A call that I answered with happiness and desire to move forward.

I know none of this makes sense.  But it does to me.  And I am just glad that I have so many special people in my life…like friends, and my Jeremy, and my mom (who coincidentally I got to celebrate this month)…and so many blessings.  It’s overwhelming at times.  And a big responsibility.  Afterall….to those whom much is given, much is expected, right?!

All rambling with rose-colored glasses aside, we had a fun time with May.  Here’s what we talked about this month…







I love my sponsors.  Not only do they provide customers with great products on a daily basis, they also have their generous hand in the blogging world.  When folks recognize what an amazing online resource blogs are…everyone here wins.  Readers get to influence trends, receive awesome giveaway prizes and receive free content and project ideas because sponsors allow bloggers to invest back in their sites.  It’s really wonderful for us all!  I am thankful for these fine companies and I hope you will consider looking at what they provide if you are tackling a project of your own!

Impressions Hardwood Collection has really nice wood flooring.  The kind you wanna lay down on and read a book with your legs on a sliding glass door.  No joke.

Everyone knows I am a fan of The Tile Shop.  Just make sure you check out their tile that is marble…the selection is amazing…and even Sarah Richardson likes marble.


In the market for kitchen cabinets?  Well, luck be your lady (or man) because Kitchen Resource Direct has the cheapest wholesale prices for cabinets the internet has to offer – price guaranteed!

I love picking through Golden Age USA.  Go click around for a while.  I dare ya.

Welcome to the Prettiest Print Shop.  Invitation design, party printables and nursery wall art…and CUSTOM designs.  That means you get what YOU want.
