Because of all the craziness from this week's book launch, I didn't get a chance to go through last week's links like I would have liked.  But I did spy with my little eye this beautiful dresser redo shared by Clockwork Interiors.  I love the navy blue!

31 Days of All Things Home: Gratitude~

Welcome to day 21 of 31 Days of All Things Home!

I had a hard time figuring out what to post about today.  You see, I have half-finished projects galore. My dining room is full of bins and boxes with swag and other fun stuff for the Decorating For Real Life book launch party on Thursday.  My basement is in the process of being painted.  Everything is a mess...but you know why?  Because I'm blessed.

I'm a type A personality.  Mess and clutter make me a little bit crazy.  So when I start to get overwhelmed by the less-than-organized home around me, I remember that all the craziness is the result of blessings.  It's true...

I have a new house.  I worked hard and bought the house all by myself.  I have a garage that is still full of boxes because I have stuff.  Yes, stuff...that I will be moving into the new house that I bought...by myself...because I worked hard.

I have a dining room full of boxes and bins with swag in them.  Swag that I am giving to people who are coming to celebrate my book launch.  Because I wrote a book.  And it got published.  (It's pretty crazy to type those words because it still seems surreal).

My dining room on a clean day. 

I have half-finished projects all over the place because I am in the process of writing book number 2...while I am moving into my new house...that I bought...by myself...because I worked hard.

I have kid clutter everywhere because I have four beautiful children that make me crazy and happy and bursting-at-the-seams with love.

My favorite photo of  my kids. like. ever.

And so when I don't have anything to post about because my projects aren't finished and my house is a mess, I really do have something to post about...the blessings in my life.  They are real.  And I am grateful for them.
