Love The Home You Have~

One of the great joys of blogging is meeting so many wonderfully talented friends.

Today I'm excited to share about a new book, Love The Home You Have, written by my friend Melissa of The Inspired Room blog.

As part of her book launch, Melissa asked me to participate (along with several other amazing bloggers) in a small "Love Your Home Challenge". 

 She has several of these challenges in her book.  They are simple ways that you can make the home you currently have into a space that you love and that is a reflection of you and your family.

My project is so simple, it might actually make you laugh...but I hope you take it in the spirit I mean it to be taken...
