Screen shot 2014-02-28 at 10.40.54 AM

Happy Friday Friends!!!

So I am super excited to show you a recent project that we have been working on! It is still in process – So welcome to the process! :)

We have been working on refinishing a 1920’s antique table. I had been wanting a long table for awhile  but didn’t feel like my space was conducive for that – but I felt that this table was great since the leaves are built in and can slide in on the ends or can be extended!! Win! Win!

Trust me when I tell you that my Before picture makes the table look SO much better than it really was! Table needed some serious help! It is hard to tell from this picture but the table top had a lot of wear and tear & was crying for a makeover!

Favorite Things!

Every Thursday night I have the privilege to host an ASU XA Girls Community Night. Each week is a little different but they all have one thing in common-  Connection (Oh and coffee!!). Spending intentional time together – sharing life-  hearing girls’ “stories” & learning that no matter what our history may be – we are not all that different.

So– yesterday just happened to be my birthday as well! (promise I didn’t plan that!). Something you should know about me – I LOVE birthdays and I LOVE gifts – to give them and to receive them!! :) I also equally love great packaging — ya know, the details!
