I’m joining the incredible Lisa Leonard in a weekly segment called Hello Monday.
Hello Monday is a post to greet the new week with an open heart and a fresh perspective.
Today is a new day, a new beginning–and there’s so much to be thankful for!

It was another COLD and snowy weekend here in Michigan – so we spent most of our time at home, watching the Olympics (GO TEAM USA!) and working on projects around the house. The girls spent hours creating handmade Valentines (they are SO sweet!) and I was able to spend some quality time with my sewing machine. I don’t know about you, but I tend to let the little projects pile up. So this weekend I set a goal for myself to clear out my basket of repairs/unfinished projects. It feels SO good to start the week with a clean slate and plenty of time for NEW projects!
