Encouraging Hearts and Home: Happy Almost Birthday to Me!

Every year as soon as the 4th of July passes my thoughts turn to my birthday! Typically my mom and I head out on a day long shopping trip and enjoy a nice lunch out and then my husband and I pack up and head for a little weekend getaway but this year traditions might get moved around a bit as we are so busy this July!  That said I am still looking forward to my birthday this week and as such just picked a few random favorites of mine from last week's party.  

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!
