What’s​ your word for the New Year?

 

A few years back I was asked a question from my niece Kris, “Whats your word for the New Year?!!” … My word?….I had always done the same ole list of resolutions that was never achieved and very quickly forgotten.

Summertime 2016

I’d have to say that I’ve had the best summer ever! Family and friends and so many good times were had, I am truly blessed! And although it’s GORGEOUS this fall time, I can’t help but look forward to next summer to do it all again! Here’s some of my favorite pictures- be sure to watch it in HD and full screen ❤

The “Carpenters”

Never did I think that I’d be stumbled upon by the producers of HGTV/DIY network.

It’s truly amazing to me that for the last three weeks I’ve been in contact with some awesome producers who thought our family and the work that we did on our flip houses was of interest! After much thought it was a family decision to decline the offer… it’s a compliment I will always cherish. Doing a show would have been such fun but with Craig’s business and 4 busy young professionals a series just couldn’t work….

For someone who hates regrets I’ll always wonder, but in my heart this family is everything I’ll ever need and that always comes first!

Here is a video that was put together for them-I took out the interviews to shorten it up some. A HUGE thank you to the producers of HGTV for an exciting three weeks and the amazing opportunity, ❤ The Carpenters
