I am so grateful today, for little things and grand things.  This year has been full of accomplishments, celebrations, and sweet moments, but also challenges.  As we recover from a bountiful Thanksgiving, I take this moment to reflect on all I’m thankful for today, and always.  Today, my home and heart are full of joy, as I sit back and watch my lovely children play and laugh, and my loving husband enjoy a much-needed break from his chef duties while he watches football and has a beer.  My life is busy, I’ll be the first one to admit that, but I wouldn’t change anything for the world.  I am without a dull moment, and it’s all worth it.

As many of you know, I finally launched my own business two years ago and it is SO MUCH HARD WORK but also so rewarding.  It’s a thing of beauty to create something on your own and watch it blossom over time.  Sweetest Celebrations is my passion and I have barely touched the surface of everything I want to do with it.  The focus is on celebrating love and designing and styling weddings, but I also feel a need to share more inspiration for your home and entertaining through my business.

I have missed blogging here, on How Sweet Life Is, as it became my outlet for expressing my gratitude and love for my family as well as a way to stay connected with our dearest friends and family.  I have neglected this blog for too long, overthinking what I will share and creating the perfect blog post as an extension of my new creative business, but I realize now that simplicity is best, when it comes to many things in life.  Expect to hear more from me in the future, whether I’m sharing a sweet moment with you that made my day, sharing a sneak peek into my home, or simply sharing a tried and true family recipe that I can’t get enough of.

I tried keeping a journal and it was to no avail.  In an effort to do it all, I have left to much ‘for later’ and regret falling out of touch with my first love – writing.  I have baby books to fill, family photos to hang, and decorating projects to finish.  Follow me as I continue on this crazy and fun journey, and share with you my ups and downs, and turn to my words for comfort on days (like today) when I’m feeling just a bit overwhelmed because there’s just a little too much on my plate…and writing gives me the release I need to continue and feel renewed.

Thank you for taking the time to read my humble blog and stay connected, and thanks to all you fellow blogging mamas who continue to inspire me with your DIY projects and stories about your sweet families.  I am grateful for my little family who keeps me busier than I’d like to be, but also gives me hope and fills me with more joy than my little heart can handle sometimes.

{thank you for all your support and may you find joy in the simplest pleasures, today and always}

Stay sweet.

xoxo
