My Alpine Home


We have lived in our new home in Alpine, Utah for four years now. My current goal is to make a larger more open home (which works great with our extended family) have a bit of cottage charm and seem more cozy. I hope you will follow along and give me encouragement as well as advice as I embark upon this challenge.

‘Showing a Little Love’ Challenge. . .Day 1 & Valentine Features

February has arrived and it’s time to start ‘showing a little love’!  Like I’ve mentioned, this is something we should be doing every day of our lives.  Although, it never hurts to pay extra attention.

That’s what I’ll be doing each day from now until February 14th. . .the day of “LOVE

Today’s challenge:  To take a bouquet of flowers to someone who needs a little cheering up.  Who couldn’t use a bit of cheer this time of year?  I have a particular someone in mind.  I will share with you tomorrow how I met this challenge.

If you decide that you want to join in and take on the challenge I would love to hear about your experience!

Now for today’s Valentine features from recent Share Your Cup links:

Carlene from Organized Clutter Queen shared her fun Valentines Mantel.  Love that rustic bicycle wheel!
