I am back from one marathon weekend! We had Oliver’s piano recital on Friday night and I don’t know what it is about seeing my child play music, but I almost cry every time. I also almost cried watching Harper at her first dance recital. She was so precious! We also celebrated Taylor’s birthday on Saturday night and it was so much fun. All of our favorite elements- good weather, good live music, and most of my favorite people in one place. Sunday we had a completely different set of emotions while attending the funeral for Dobbs and Reed Eddings. It was truly a celebration of their lives and as gut-wrenching as it was it was also really powerful to sit in the presence of their parents and see that they still have hope and were able to sing, smile, and talk about forgiveness. I have never felt the presence of God like that in my life and I know that I will never be the same.
So I was finding it hard to transition from all of those feelings back into blogging so I did what comes naturally- decided to makeover a room in our house. I guess it really is therapy for me so I started brainstorming on a little refresh to our hallway.
