You're Gonna Love It - Week 71

Happy Monday evening again dear friends!

I can't wait to see what crafty posts you have to share this week!

I want to thank those of you that have emailed me or left messages on Facebook asking if we have been affected by the massive flooding here in my beloved state of Colorado.

We have had the continuous rainfall and tornado warnings at our new home but, no flooding.  

My heart just cries for my sister and brother Coloradoans that have lost something or, everything. 
It will take a long time for the state to recover and for some, recovery will never come.  
If you would like to help those impacted, here are some groups accepting donations for flood victims: Colorado Flood Relief

On the home front, I have finished setting up furniture and unpacked a few boxes in my office and the dining room.  I will be sharing those rooms with you on Wednesday so check back then.  I am trying to just concentrate on one or two rooms at a time and I have been setting goals for the weekend and just chewing away at them until they are completed.  
This upcoming weekend I plan to get my dishes and other tablescaping tools unpacked and put away.  
Wish my back luck on that chore!

Now, let's get on to partying!

Last weeks most viewed came from my friend at Taylor Made Ranch
They shared how they live deliberately and simply and how it has changed their life.
Just seeing the clothes on the line waving in the wind makes my soul calmer!
Thank you for sharing your simple lifestyle with us!  Be sure to grab and

Now, Let's Party!

Please limit your link ups to
just 2 or 3. 

I love to spotlight

But again, it's not required.  

I ask that you please

    I hope you are enjoying your new home and all the unpacking. I suppose it gives you a sense of newness everywhere!

  21. Kathe, as always appreciate you hosting the party! Most importantly I am glad you are safe and my heart goes out to those who have experienced the flooding. We have had at least two major floods in our state in recent years and it is truly devastating to those who loose everything and difficult to recover from and relief aid is so important!!
