I’ve been out of the loop for a few days between traveling to Las Vegas with the family, enjoying the night life, hanging out with cousins, and working on the house here … forgetting a blog that needs attention. :)
This week, we’re replacing a shower door, building a fireplace mantel, and preparing bedrooms for future guests. All of that comes to a halt come Wednesday evening for more hours with friends and family. I just love Thanksgiving, that opportunity to pause and enjoy a day that’s all about food and family before the rapid pace of the Christmas season. Today it’s a belated version of ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ that’s long overdue. Here are the favorite projects spied across the internet to inspire you!
