A friend and a family room...


I spent the day at a dear friends house....
(the above is not her house but it could be...)
What I love about her house is:
It is a reflection of who she is...and is becoming...
You can tell the people in the house are comfortable in their space...
The pets welcome you just like the people do...
there were homework papers out on the table, games...
and evidence that a full life was being lived in this home.
Ashley is updating her blog...she is changing the name...she is deciding what she will blog about each day...
I have encouraged her to go for it...
you will want to get to know her...
she is kind hearted, encouraging and truthful...she celebrates each person for who they are...
and for who God has made them and molding them to become.
I am honored to call her friend!
Today we refinished a dresser for her new guest bedroom...
she is going to guest post for me while I am gone...in 2 weeks...
she is gonna show you what we did today... when she guest posts for me...
don't miss it...a.d.o.r.a.b.l.e.

I pray for you today rich and dear friendships...a home where the people feel comfortable and loved...
that you will be encouraged to be exactly who God has created you to be...
...and that you will celebrate those around you with all the love and joy He celebrates you with!

Oh...love the room above...
so comfortable..
.love the ceiling...will have that somewhere someday...
love the clock on the side door...
hate playing monopoly...
but love the board game out on the table
 (Ashley keeps her scrabble game out on their coffee table...so inviting)

Love and sweet friends,
Tracey

  1. i am so glad i'm not the only one that doesn't like monopoly. ugh. I do like the idea of the scrabble game being out. We have a tendancy to leave puzzles sitting out - and that says home to me. Love you blog sweets - you have such a sweet soul ~

    can't wait to see the piece that you helped her with.....sure it's better than amazing!

    I'm thinking you need to try one of the doors in that picture up above as your front door...

    those doors are perfection!

    Oh...I don't like Monopoly either...that game never ends! But we love some Scrabble around our house :)

    Thanks again for your help today! I love the dresser...it's still in the garage right now but I keep going out to peek on it...and love it even more!

  6. Some good friends of ours built a home recently...she asked me to come over and help arrange her furniture and things like that because "your house always feels so welcoming and cozy.." I was so thrilled and humbled! What a huge compliment to your friend! Can't wait to see the dresser...
