I can’t believe it’s here. Our first Christmas at White Cottage Farm!! I wanted to pop on here on Christmas Eve & wish you all a very Merry Christmas & to thank you for a few things. I’m not sure if you guys know this, but every time you stop here on the blog, every time you leave a comment, every time you share my blog with friends or family it brings me so much joy. As I reflect on this holiday season I see that you guys & the blog were a huge part of it & a great gift to me every single day. I have a HUGE passion for design & blogging so I am forever grateful that you make it so enjoyable to share my heart. Thank you for letting me share what I love here & for caring about our little family & farm. Christmas has been really special here on the farm this year & it gives me all the fuzzies thinking about what will come in the new year here in our home & our farm. Some new animals? Some new projects? My brain won’t stop, but I will take a break to enjoy the holiday the next few days… maybe…
I know I blogged a few days ago about being childless at Christmas [here] & I’m so thankful for all the kind words on that post. Not only are you guys amazing about our home decor & home renovations, but you guys are always so helpful along our fertility journey as well. Thank you for letting me open up here & being a form of therapy for our great loss. I hope in some small way I can help you if you are suffering with loss or hardships in your life. Thank you!
I always feel weird after Christmas because we take down all our Christmas decor, BUT this year I’m a little excited because after Christmas we are going to dive right back in to home renovations & I’m pumped! I’m hoping a new kitchen is in our very near future. I want to enjoy the Christmas decor for a couple more days, but then give me a paint brush and a hammer because 2017 is going to bring some exciting changes to White Cottage Farm.
Before the new year starts I will be blogging some goals for our farm, home, personal, & our shop. I’m not usually one for big goals, but this year I’m really feeling some changes are needed. I don’t know if it’s the holiday season, but I have really high hopes for 2017 & I’m so excited that you guys will be here for all of it. I’m going to do my best to document ever single step along the way and share it here better than I have done in the past.
So, this post has been a lot of rambling from me over coffee as I sit here in the sunroom. I wanted to come on here & wish you a Merry Christmas, but I couldn’t do that without saying thank you. I pray you all have a very Merry Christmas, a happy holiday, & are able to reflect on the ups & downs of this past year & find joy no matter what. Thank you guys for stopping by my little blog & for making my holiday season amazing. MERRY CHRISTMAS! XX
