Pantry Renovation

You are probably looking at this picture and thinking…huhhhhh?! First off I gotta tell you I am not a professional photographer so these are not the best. Do you know how hard it is to take pictures in a closet? Geez. The coloring is so hard. *smacking my head* Anyhow, hope you will stick with me because I am so proud of my husband and our new pantry is fabulousssss! It is seriously my favorite room in the house. I just keep standing in it.

The picture above is after we gutted the room out. It was full of white wire racks that the builder had installed. This room is about 5′ by 7′ and you can imagine how much I had stuffed in there. It went down to this…

June Favorites

My June favorites were really easy this month since June is my birthday month. I got so many awesome gifts. I feel truly blessed.

I have to admit turning 50 was a bit tough on me. My physical body doesn’t feel any different, but I think that I am more critical of myself. I think my skin looks dry, I need a new hair style, I need to lose 20 pounds…do my hands looks dry?! I mean all this couldn’t have happened overnight!

I talk myself down of the ledge and tell myself I’m awesome. I am fearfully and wonderfully made and my assurances come from the Lord and my family. No more comparing myself to others and magazine covers.

After all I’m old enough to be over all that, right?!!
