I know I already posted about missing Jacob and excitedly awaiting his return, but I couldn’t post this adorable Welcome Home banner in case he happened to read my blog on his way home from Orlando… so here it is!:). I was so proud of it that I left it up for about 4 days after he returned. I guess I just thought it would be a nice reminder of how much I loved him… but, alas, all good things must come to an end, and it probably seemed weird to the neighbors, whose doors are completely blank. So, instead I took a picture & it will live on forever!
Even though the Welcome Home sign has retired, I’m still delighted with our bright and homey front porch. With the wreath, our fun welcome mat (thanks, Kelly!), and my new potted plant, it’s feeling pretty cheery!
And here are a few Newlywed Lessons I’ve learned thus far:
-A little lemon goes very very much too far. I have learned not to double the amount of lemon called for in the recipe. In fact, I’ve learned just to stay away from lemon in general because today I learned my husband doesn’t even like it! ha!
-Jacob said today that maybe I should give these Pinterest recipes a rest for a while.. so far I’ve been 1 for 3 and I’ve made that 1 twice already.
-Don’t keep flushing the toilet when it is clearly not functioning properly. You will be very angry when it overflows and your husband will still be at work for 6 more hours….
-Even though it’s very fun to bake a lot, it’s a better idea to strategically plan to bake only when having guests over or going to a friend’s house. Eating sweet treats every single night is not a good thing.
