summer slowly coming to an end...

As summer slowly dwindles down to the start of the school year, I'm a little sad that it went by so fast, but also excited to get started again with the school year. My oldest is starting 2nd grade and my youngest will be starting kindergarten! fast the years have gone by. I can't believe my baby will be in kindergarten! We will all be starting at a new school this year that just opened and I've been slowly getting my room set up, and of course essential oils are going to be in that mix. They help me so much throughout the school day as well as helping to keep us healthy throughout the year. Backpacks have been picked out this year, so I'm hoping we can actually make it through the year without them ripping or tearing....we shall see! ha! 
Hoping to enjoy these last few weeks of our summer with a few different local excursions and then gear up for another school year.

Friday Faves!

Something that I've been doing for awhile is share what I am loving lately and today is NO different! Today is definitely a happy Friday! The sun is shining, we are halfway through July and we have a fun weekend planned.

Here are some favorites lately to help decorate our new home.

I've always loved Meg Duerksen and have followed her blog for years. She loves color and it just makes me SO happy!

Can't wait to hang this print and 2 others in the playroom!

Wishful Printing from Etsy

Can't wait to hang this style in our guest room. I ordered 9 to display on the wall in the spare bedroom and it will fit in perfect with the wall color and new bed spread. WOOT! Love the quotes she has in her shop. 

Artful Life Designs from Etsy created a custom piece for our family. I love it.

I've been wanting to find a piece of artwork or print that shows our family picture in a sentimental way for us. Since we never did get to see our third baby, I felt like this really was a way to share for us. Can't wait to get this framed and hung in our house.

SK Wood Designs

 For the last Friday Favorites I got this from the above etsy shop and I LOVE how it turned out. This little piece is going to go in our living room and I'm excited to showcase both Columbia and St. Louis. STL will always be my home even though we've been here in Columbia for 12 years :)
