A big thanks so Julie from Redhead Can Decorate for inviting me along!  So if you are new here, welcome!  Our kitchen was the very first thing I posted on my blog 6 years ago, wow does time fly!  It was a project my husband and I were extremely proud of and has been featured in Better Homes and Gardens.

Inspire Me Monday #106

Welcome to Inspire Me Monday, so happy you are here!  Sorry for the lack of posts this past week, the kids had spring break so I completely unplugged and it was SO nice! I do however have lots of Spring goodies coming up in the next 2 weeks I’m excited to share with you.

We did have a huge scare with Winston on Easter Sunday.  I was in the kitchen packing for our camping trip and I heard him let out a HUGE yelp and it didn’t stop. I ran into our backyard and he had been bitten by a baby rattle snake.  We rushed him to the ER and honestly didn’t know if he would make it through the night.  So many people praying for him and he pulled through, thank God!  After talking with the boys, they still really wanted to go camping after they knew Winston would be ok.  We had this planned with friends 6 months ago so we did what we did and snuck Winston in with us. He would have had perfect care with our friends but we couldn’t bare to leave him. With his pain meds he was content just being carried around and by the third day he was back to being an active little puppy, we couldn’t be more relieved.  Poor guy has had a tough start to his life.
