So I didn't finish. I'm kind of bummed but it will be done in a few weeks or so. Not the end of the world really. I think this time around there were just too many things out of my control. And, it's been a very rough month for my family. In addition to being sick for just short of a month now, my husband's sister, who he's extremely close to, lost her year and a half long battle with cancer last week. She was 48 years old. Needless to say my foyer hasn't been tops on my mind. I'm not linking this post to the challenge but I didn't want to leave it hanging. A death puts so many things in perspective and I just feel like now, more than ever, I want to love on my family and live like there's no tomorrow. When you're young you feel like you're bullet proof. Like nothing bad can happen to you. The reality is it's just not true. I know everyone says this, but make sure the people who are close to you know how much you love and appreciate them because our lives are so fragile and uncertain.
And now, getting off my soapbox and on to something less heavy, I wanted to thank Linda from Calling It Home for putting the challenge together. Though I didn't finish, I did get the kick in the pants that I needed to get started and I know it's going to be fabulous (or at least it looks fabulous in my head). I plan on spending some time this weekend looking at everyone's wonderful rooms. It will be a great diversion.
