Happy Monday: Birthdays and Renovations

Well hello and happy Monday to you! October has been quite a busy month. My niece and nephew already celebrated their birthday earlier this month and we celebrated my father-in-law’s birthday this weekend with lobster and games. But today is one very special day for me because of the fact that the most important woman in my life was born … my mom. She passed on in 2007 but she has not faded from my heart and mind.

As I begin to do more genealogy research, I feel happy to revisit both her and her families stories. I want to leave the boys with the connection they deserve. I know I will not stop celebrating her many achievements or her birthday. So today I will pause a little longer to remember that on this day, the most amazing woman in my life was born and she made it possible for me to be here today.As I get older sometimes I catch myself dreading the number I will become each year but I really need to celebrate them all because it is such a blessing to be here with my family and friends. That is what I should focus on rather than dread “getting older”.  Remind me I said that on my next birthday!!On another note, last week we have begun the process of renovating our bedroom. So to say my house is in disarray is quite the understatement. We are sleeping in our guest bedroom, furniture is everywhere especially in my craft room, we can only use one bathroom (thank the stars I had boys or I would go insane). But when it’s complete, I know it will be so worth the wait and inconvenience.Leao is doing all of the renovations and he has begun with the removal of the popcorn ceiling. Then he will do any patching and then he will install crown molding. I love the one he put in the boy’s bedroom so that is the one I selected for ours. This is the original color the room was when we bought this house so many years ago. But I have selected a very bold, deep color that I will share when we get to that stage.

Lastly, despite the gloomy day outside, I am quite happy especially with the Patriot’s winning last night. I hope you have a blessed day and I’ll be back soon!

  1. Cherish the memories you have of your mother. They are oh so special. Embrace each birthday as it is a special day you share with your mom!

    I am so excited to see how your bedroom renovation turns out. I am sure it will be amazing!

    • Thank you Joan! I miss her so much but I am happy that I have memories to share with the boys.
      I will be sure to share pictures as we progress. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment. It means a lot.

  2. Love to you my friend! I’m trying to learn not to dread birthdays and be thankful too. Can’t wait to see the renovations! That’s a big one for sure, but will be so fun to put it all together! XXOO

    • Thanks Ashley! Yes it is a big project but we will go slow and I plan on not bringing half the crap I brought out back so it will be filled only with what I love.
