I am so happy to finally share with you all who was selected for the Lowe’s spring makeover! Some paperwork had to be squared away before I could announce it so thanks for your patience! First of all, you all made it nearly impossible to pick because you had so many great rooms, great stories, you made me laugh, and made me want to visit all of your homes! Thank you ALL for applying!
So where am I heading?…..CHARLOTTE! That’s right, I am staying right here in my beloved home town. When I began looking through the applications I was immediately excited at not only the fun prospective families but the various locations. I love to travel so I was anxious to figure out which city I would be visiting. But as I read through the applications one name grabbed my attention. Hadley is a teacher at my kids’ preschool and has been a major part of my life this past year. Not in an intentional way but through her story. She and her husband went through an unimaginable tragedy last year and lost two children in a car accident. I’ve had the privilege of witnessing her amazing strength since and have gained so much in my own personal faith from it. I constantly wish there was something I could do to add a little bright spot to their days so I knew immediately that this makeover would be my chance.
I am a thinker so I often like to dissect parts of my life and this blog is a big part of it so it is inevitably involved. I always want to feel like I am not just writing a blog to write a blog. I want this place to have meaning just as I want decorating to mean more than just helping someone choose a couch. I am honored to be apart of this fresh start for such a great family and I am thankful that God brought all the pieces together.
We have been gathering inspiration and I will have more updates to share in the coming months, including which space we are making over so stay tuned!
And again thanks to all of the applicants- I so wish I could come to every one of your houses!
