The Best Part Lately


Poofing the Pillows Christmas decorations - mercury glass ornaments in a bowl

There are many of us are working feverishly right now preparing for our Christmas in Texas Blog Hop which is next week, December 7-11. A project like this is exciting but stressful!

It's so much fun to play carols and work on my house.
I love making it pretty because my family enjoys it too.
Do you know what the best part has been though?

Behind the scenes there have been many emails back and forth with this Texas group. 
These ladies are so supportive of one another.
In our group of 26 bloggers, we've had sick kids, company that has stayed a long time, leaky roofs, you name it! Isn't that how life is? Just when you think you can concentrate on one thing...there's a  curve ball right there for you to hop over. Or in some cases it's construction workers to walk around.

Christmas is for JOY!

To all my Texas blogging friends, thank you for building each other up.
I have no doubt that your posts next week will be amazing and remember...
it's just for fun. :)

Everything usually takes a LOT longer than it appears, doesn't it? I know when I did the Fall Home Tour, it was all-consuming, so I can only imagine how it is for you ladies.

I'm so looking forward to all the prettiness though. It will be totally worth it!

Consider It All Joy said...

I believe there is truth in these words, but not just for Texas bloggers. Most bloggers, in general, are such wonderful, sweet and kind people, always willing to share an encouraging word, prayers or cyber hugs. I love bloggers!! Blessings, Cindy Looking forward to Texas Week!!

Linda said...

Thank you for including me! I have been reading all the emails back and forth and have loved every encouraging word! I hope I don't make you nervous but I'm still not sure how to pull this off! I will be waiting in anticipation for that first group on Dec. 7th!!!

It's a lot of work to get the house ready, take the pictures, edit, retake pictures, write the post ...

I am looking forward to the tour.

Wonderful Stacey! This is going to be wonderful time visiting the holiday homes of Texas bloggers! I am so excited to meet new bloggers and get a peek inside their festive homes! Thank you so much for hosting!!

Jaybird said...

I am so excited to see all of the Texas homes!! I wish I could join you all, but alas, a blog is not for me. HOWEVER.....I will be here with bells on to admire all of the hard work that I KNOW will be done. Decorating for Christmas is never easy, but so enjoyable and such a lovely way to honor the Savior's birthday!!!
Hurry up December 7th :^)
Blessings,
J
