Is it Tuesday already? I had such a busy weekend, so this week is already flying by. Haven't you noticed when you're busy that time goes faster?
My husband had his big retirement party last Sunday. It was at his fire station and at least 100 people stopped by to wish him well. There was lots of homemade BBQ to eat and lots of hugs and handshakes to go around. I was with him at the party and it was such a treat to get to see some of the guys he graduated with that I haven't seen in over 20+ years. These were people that we hung out with and got to know each others families. They're the ones we took vacations with before we had any kids! So, it really was like a reunion. He will go to the station tomorrow morning to officially "sign-off", but he is no longer fighting fire and going on calls. I'm a bit relieved to know that he's no longer at risk to die in a fire or have a heart attack on the job. Many former retirees stopped by and told him to prepare to start feeling better than he ever has before. He doesn't know what it's like to sleep on a normal schedule. Now, it's time to live the second chapter of our life. He will find something else to do that isn't so hard on his body. This is a change for both of us.
Speaking of sleep..................
I wanted to share the other two bedrooms in our house that I've recently made some changes to. My guestroom received some changes by adding some new pillows and throws.
I brought in some black and white into this room. One day, I will have a bigger bed for my guest room, but this is fine for now.
Do you remember my wicker rocking chair? Well, it ended up in here many months ago.
In my teenage son's room, I bought him some new bedding from H&M. It's white with subtle black diamonds on it. It's the perfect neutral to be able to change up pillows on it to add whatever color I choose. He used to have red plaid bedding.
I added this fun bright yellow pillow to his neutral bedding and it seemed to work perfectly. Since he's so young I felt he needed a little bit of color.
Be sure to come back here tomorrow night for my weekly Share Your Style party. I am hosting it this week!
Thanks for stopping by.
