Encouraging Hearts and Home: Happy 1st day of September

Can you believe the year is 3/4 of the way over?  It just boggles my mind.  We were on vacation all last week and I'm still trying to play catch up with all things blog related.  I haven't even finished looking through all the posts that were linked up last week (I will, though!) but I am featuring a few that caught my eye. 

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!

Linking up with: Thinking Out Loud,


  1. Thank you for hosting Joanne.
    This year has definitely flown by!

  2. Oooh, I love the Lego display that you featured! How cool is that?! Thanks for hosting, my friend!


  3. I am.also in SHOCK that we've made it to September!

  4. I love Legos and that's such a great way to display them! Some of ours are huge sets, the kids decided to disassemble them now but we're still keeping them. I do have a few sets of the large Lego Creator sets that are mine and I display then in my craft room. I'm probably the biggest Lego fan out of the four of us LOL. Wish I could have an entire room dedicated to Legos!!

    1. I don't think we have any Lego sets left in our house! At one time I'm pretty sure we could have covered every square inch of just about every room with them.

  5. Ahhhh thank you so much for the shoutout! And thanks, as always, for hosting!

  6. It’s hard to believe that 3/4 of the year has flown by, Joanne! Christmas will be here before we know it. Thank you so much for the party. Happy September!

    1. I was just thinking the same thing yesterday!

  7. Thanks for hosting, hope your week would be awesome....

  8. Thank you for the party. No, I can't believe it's almost Christmas. Ugh!

  9. I am far behind on my blog reading as well. I can't believe we are already into September.

  10. That lego display is amazing! May have to do something similar for my boys! Have a great weekend!

  11. I'm not sure where this year has gone. I'm afraid if I take a breath, it will be Christmas!
