The last week few weeks have been such a mix of emotions. People ask me how I’m doing all the time and It’s so hard to answer. Some days I feel like I’m good and others I’m numb and sad. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, please check out my blog here to get a bit of back story on what our little family has been going through this month.
It’s been 16 days since I had our lifeless baby and we’ve been going over the top to make sure our family takes all the stops to unsure that we mourn properly. On friday we put up our Christmas tree. To some it might seem early, but to a mourning family, it’s the perfect mix of cheer.
The glow alone makes me feel so cozy right down to my bone. I needed something to make me smile at night when the kids got tucked into bed and the Christmas tree does just that.
I’ll be honest, I’m not super awesome at decorating trees. Every year I plan to make it “perfect” and it just isn’t one of my strong suits. But man, the glow…. Oh, so gorgeous!
I’ve been super super introverted and I’ve only left my house twice to go to my parents house. I mean.. that can’t be super healthy, right? I just don’t want to see people. I’ve been avoiding my messages on Facebook like a plague and I just want to be surrounded by my little family all the time, drink Starbucks Christmas lattes and live in my cozy jammies. I’m trying not to be too hard on myself as I know I need this time to grieve, but I just hope that someday I will return back to normal.
So, on top of our little one going to heaven, we also moved at the very end of October. It was a gong show and I honestly think I’m mentally and physically tired still.
I’ve been slowly unpacking my house and I have a few DIY’s that I want to do in our home. So here are a few DIY’s you will be seeing in the next few weeks
-DIY Farmhouse Drop Sheet Curtains
-Dollar Store Galvanized Bins Turned Vintage
-Round Up of the cheapest farmhouse decor
Here is a few shots of my living room and I’m currently saving for this rug and I’ll have my drop sheet curtains up soon. It’s starting to feel so homey.
and my console that I STILL love. I had to crop my TV out as I was playing Christmas music. 😉
I just feel like I’m the worst at blogging lately. I feel like all I want to do is blog from my heart and blog sad thoughts. But you guys don’t come hear to be sad, you come here to be inspired! I hope that I can do that once again soon.
This week we will be having a little funeral for Nolan, so I will also be blogging that with photos of gifts that people have given us for him. We have been so blessed. We have people we do not even know offering to do things for us. Seriously, so blessed I can’t even stress how much.
I will try and get a DIY on this blog this week. For now, thank you for sticking around and lovin’ on me!
