Encouraging Hearts and Home: Hello Again!

We're back from our family vacation and while it is so good to be back home I already miss my sister, her family, and my aunt & uncle.  We had such a great week together!  Of course being away from home for a week I have quite a to do list to focus on this week including getting Alec's uniforms and school supplies all squared away for school and working on getting our basement furniture.  I already feel like this month is just going to fly right by!  Have your local areas schools started back already? 



And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  

 

Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!



Some of my favorites from last week:

These Strawberry Crumble Bars from The House on Silverado look amazing!




I simply adore this card Ellibelle's Crafty Wednesday- August Challenge: For Boys or Men by Ellibelle's Corner

    1. Thank you! I'm trying to find the fun in it... but can't help think I enjoyed it so much more when I was homeschooling and everything was done by my own time table. LOL.

  4. I am glad that you were able to enjoy time with your sister before the back to school chaos begins! We still have more than 3 weeks of summer vacation left here so I am not feeling the pressure yet! But I am ready for the structure of school days returning.
