Thoughts & Tablescapes
I love decorating dining tables! I love bringing people together and what better way than eating around the table. I designed and hosted Thanksgiving (below) and I’m just in need of a Christmas theme. Im going to stop by Big Lots over the weekend to pick up some inexpensive pieces. I stopped by Pottery Barn for some inspo. What holiday themes are you working on and what’s your go to spot to gather your pieces?
I really hope you’re enjoying the holidays and spreading love and joy the best you can. When i’m confronted with feelings of despair and sadness I push myself to think of all the things i’m grateful for. I usually go on missions or get involved in some sort of community service and that usually shifts my perspective. But, we can implement selfless acts in our everyday lives like talking to and showing love to the cleaning lady, giving an extra tip and writing a sweet note on a receipt, paying for the person behind you at the register, holding the doors or buying food for the homeless. God sees our act of kindness and increases our capacity to love. In the end, you’ll recognize that you’re not focusing on your issue as much. I’m training myself to practice gratefulness as a lifestyle to the point where im subconsciously saying thank you to things like filling my tank up or walking into a warm heated home.
