Happy July 4th Weekend! First of all, how on earth is it already July? I feel like I say that every year at this point of the summer. I guess I’m feeling more surprised by how quickly time is flying because of our big move. So much to do! So many things to see! I’m having a blast decorating our new home, putting my mark on our space. In fact, we’re making kind of a big change next week, one that I know will make this home feel more like it’s ours. All of the walls on the first floor, in the upstairs hallway, and in our bonus room will be painted! We got three different quotes from local painting companies, and were pleasantly surprised at just how reasonable this job will be compared to Northern VA. The kids are not looking forward to living through another paint job, but as I keep telling them, it would take twice as long and would be ten times more stressful if we were to do it ourselves. Todd and his crew are sure to do an amazing job, and I am so ready to get my own color choices up on these walls! I’m also excited to switch out the hardware and have the interior and exterior of the front door painted. Wait until you see the bright and cheery color I chose! It’s a little daring, but I’m trying to step outside my comfort zone with decorating this new space.
Okay, now on to the holiday at hand! First of all, check out my Patriotic Holidays Pinterest Board for all kinds of practical and creative ideas on decorating. You’ll see a few of those ideas in the pics below.
I hope you all have a safe and relaxing 4th of July weekend with your friends and family! God bless America!
