{ Farmhouse Style Spring Window Decor, New Signs & Update.. }

Hi. Before I start this post I should warn you It's going to be long & very candid on what's been going on around here & why the blog has been slower than usual in terms of content etc.. So I've mentioned this before, but I have a bad back, have had kidney issues in the past & a few other issues going on..I've put off going to the dr. for many reasons one being that I have extreme " white coat " syndrome & literally go into a panic to where I can barley talk! I'm not sure why I have this seeing as I was exposed to many hospital visits for various reasons as a child & not just for me...actually typing that just gave me my answer. Anyways, lately my back has been so bad I can't even sit up in bed in the morning without my left side of my rib cage spasing uncontrollably for the first hour upon waking! I'm in constant pain but cover it up super well { my pain tolerance is crazy }. While all this has been going on I've also felt guilty even feeling a tad bit sad for myself etc..because let's face it there is so much worse going on in the world to animals & people daily. With that being said, that brings me to my next issue I've been having or actually feeling..This "blogland" world can be an awesome source of inspiration & encouragement & business all in one, but it does have a downside..and that is the need to be better & the best 24/7! I see it all the time on IG especially from those who buy followers, market to the extreme etc.. Now I'm not knocking that style, but it's left me feeling like what is the point of it all? For example I see my mom fighting for animals in shelters, protesting, volunteering her time after her professional work week { dental field } & to me that's so much more important than home decor! I love EVERYTHING home, but what purpose does it really serve? Yes, it's inspirational, makes you feel great to have a nicely styled house or be praised/ have awesome treasures etc.. but really its all blah blah blah compared to what really matters- at least for me! I love blogging & being able to share practical home stuff with you guys & for that I'm truly thankful for this homegrown organic business of mine.

Back to today's post..the cutest new signs from my mom as a little gift for our 10 year anniversary together! I had the perfect spot for them & then decided to spruce of our kitchen window with some spring decor!! It's super simple, cozy & thrifty per usual! Come take a peek & these cute little signs with the most authentic message ever from @biglots! 

The rustic burlap curtain was a DIY almost 2 years ago HERE
I find it fun & inspirational to look back at past posts & see what has changed & how I've grown with this little business of mine!

How cute are those signs? I love the message, neutral/farmhouse look & bonus they were both under $5! 

I find it so crazy when I share a picture of our kitchen window decorated it's one of my most liked pictures!! The most random spots I tell ya hahah! I do love this cozy kitchen of ours though!

I really hope you guys have a WONDERFUL weekend ahead & spend it doing something you love, enjoying family & just being well! Thanks again for the continued support & 
P.S. sorry this post was a bit all over...Sometimes being honest is the best therapy!

Do you decorate your kitchen window area?

Happy Friday!
