Why do the weekends go by so fast? Andrew had Army this weekend, and I ran my first 5k! It feels pretty awesome to finally be able to say that! I started running again (for the first time since before I got pregnant) in February but only made it 3 weeks before I hurt my back. So last week I started back, and then ran my first 5k! I wasn’t able to run the entire thing yet, but I finished and I wasn’t last (or 2nd last) so I am happy! I took yesterday off and ran another 2 miles tonight! Progress for sure!
I finished my Summer Shelves, too! I’ll probably continue to tweak them, but for now this is what they look like.
Sorry these are always so fuzzy, it is REALLY hard to get a good clear picture because of the lighting and angle.
I kept the heart display of our favorite places up. Added a piece from one of my favorite set of dishes and the little bird (that I’m thinking about painting – it came from $1 store).
I made the Shine art, and added a little tiny creamer cup of my Mom’s that I LOVE (I love hob-nail and I love turquois and I love it double because it was hers).
Then I added split peas to the yellow flower pieces and kept the house rules and votive holder. They give off the perfect twinkle at night and I added a small votive to the creamer cup too.
I cannot tell you how much I love these shelves! They are in my open dining room/kitchen which is the first room you enter in my house. They are such a focal point. And I love that I was able to purge most of my seasonal decorations for the other rooms and just use what will fit here as my center piece!
And because I love you all so much, you can snag your own free Let it Shine printable here!!!
You can see the tutorial on how to make them here.
Check out the ones in my family room here.
Do you have a seasonal focal point in your home?
