Awesome Life Friday #63

Welcome to Awesome Life Friday!

We're so looking forward to seeing what you've been cooking, creating, growing, decorating, reviewing, giving away, and thinking about this week!

While you're here, leave your posts at the other link up we co-host here - Party in Your PJs!  It starts on Tuesday evenings, and runs through Sunday.  I hope you'll join us there as well!

I've been very busy for the past several weeks - my husband and I have decided to downsize to an apartment and so we've been doing a lot of house renovations to get our home ready to be put on the market.  We spent two weeks with no kitchen, and every day, I have contractors here with me, painting, upgrading our bathrooms, and otherwise getting it spruced up to sell.

Unlike so many of you, we are not DIY'ing it, but I do so love seeing your inspiration!  Even so, I am kept busy while they work, trying to reduce our possessions by at least half, so we can move into a smaller space.  It is both rewarding and very frustrating and tiring making a decision on everything we own.  I'm looking forward to us moving into our new phase of life soon - we've been at this since January.

Meanwhile, our writer Lauren shared a really cool ongoing project she and her daughter have been doing for the past two years:

We hope you'll check these it out if you haven't already!  Don't forget to peek at the sidebar and check out what other giveaways we currently have going.
