Thrifty Thursday Square

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week!  The weather has cooled off just a tad here in Florida and I am relishing the cool mornings.   My little garden is coming right along–things are actually sprouting, which is a HUGE improvement from last year, when almost nothing did.  I am so excited to actually grow something I can hardly stand it!

Today I am on my way to Greenville, South Carolina to attend the Allume conference.  If you are going to be there, be sure to find me and say hi!  At 6’2″, I am always easy to spot!! 🙂

In other news, there is still a week left of the LWSL Clutter Free Challenge!  If you are blogging your way through the challenge be sure to link up each day, and keep sharing photos of your progress on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook using hashtag #LWSLClutterFree.  It has been SO motivating to get my house in order, and so fun to see everyone else’s progress as well!
