>31 Days to Build a Better Home – Days 9-31

>I haven’t totally forgotten about the 31 Days to Build a Better Home series over at Today’s Housewife – honest! It has been a fun month in our house and I have been richly blessed to participate. I will be totally honest and admit that I have not done the suggested task every day, and some tasks I have done out of order. I find that it’s not so much about following every single guideline with blog challenges – it’s about gleaning ideas and inspiration to improve your life. And that, dear friends, I have done! A few highlights:

Day 30 – Start a Bucket List:
There are so many things I’d like to put on my list, most of them dealing with travel. A few places I’d like to visit with my amazing family – the Pacific NW, Colorado, the New England coastline.

Day 29 – Count Your Blessings:
I try to take a moment every day to thank God for my amazing family, our dear friends, and for the life we live. We are richly blessed and I never want to get complacent in that.

Day 19 – Start a New Book:BoldI am currently reading “Don’t Waste Your Life” by John Piper – WOW!! And, in preparing for our final vacation of the year, I have reserved several books at the local library.

Day 15 – Try a New Recipe:
One of my goals is to try at least one new recipe a week. It may not be something totally new – I often take a recipe we enjoyed and will tweak it the 2nd or 3rd time I prepare it.

Thank you to the team at Today’s Housewife for inspiring me! What a great way to wrap up the summer and refocus on our home and our family.
