Our Front Door is a Revolving Door...

Ally and Rob left Monday. We had a great time together - I especially liked getting to know my brother-in-law better. It was a really refreshing time. I'll share more later....

Now we are getting ready for another visitor - my friend Joanna is coming in today at 1:30...and I need to change the sheets, clean her bathroom, pick up toys, make a grocery list. But, I am not worried - as she is super low-key and is just coming to visit me - not inspect my home. :) Her visit will be short as she leaves Friday morning.

Prior to all of my company, I began reading A Life That Says Welcome- Simple Ways to Open Your Heart & Home to Others - written by Karen Ehman. This book has been great - and really helpful as I am giving my hand a try at being the hostess. I am so thankful for the outlook it has given to me - as I think I would have been stressed out by this point in the game. I am only half way through - and will write a more complete review after I finish the book.

Well, better scoot. Don't know if I'll have a chance to post over the next few days - so have a great week!

What a fun time! I was fun getting to know Rob a bit at your going away party in December. Tell Joanna hello and to have a great time. I remember that time at her parents house with the Wild Honeys road trip:) What fun.

I was wondering when you would update, but knew this was a busy time for you. Can't wait to get all caught up on the details!

Oh, and that craft looks AMAZING-we need to do it!!!!!
