Hello and welcome to The Farmhouse Friday Link Party #41!
I feel like I’ve been the bearer of all bad news lately, so if you don’t want to hear any more (and I don’t blame you), just skip over this part.
One of my cousins who lived across the street from us passed away last week as a result of complications from the flu. It hit him over the holidays and long story short, his body started shutting down and he was just unable to recover. He was always a great cousin, and you couldn’t ask for a better neighbor. He was in his mid-seventies.
It just seems like it’s been a tough month for a lot of people I know. All we can do is hang in there and wait for it to get better.
Again, I apologize for all the bad news lately, but I wouldn’t feel right about just acting like everything was okay and not mentioning it. I do want to keep this a happy place for you to get away from life’s challenges, but I also don’t want to be fake. I know no matter how hard I try to hide it when bad things happen in my life, it would come through here anyway, so it’s just better for me to keep it real here than to try to gloss it over when things aren’t the happiest in my world.
So how was your week?
This week’s features:
And my three latest projects…
The party rules are super simple! Link up your favorite DIY projects, decor projects, and crafts that are farmhouse style. If it doesn’t fit into that description, please don’t link it up. Please no food/recipe posts. You can link up your new and old posts alike as long as you only link them up here once.
By linking up, you will get a chance to be featured here at next week’s party! You will also get a chance for your post to be shared on my Facebook group DIY Farmhouse Style, which at this writing has over 268 thousand members! Unfortunately now this is the only way to share your blog posts and links in the group. I’ve had too many problems in the group with people sharing inappropriate links disguised as links to blog posts, so I can no longer allow anyone to post blog links directly.
By linking up to this party, you agree to give me permission to share your posts and pictures via social media and as features, roundups, etc. with an explicit link back to your original source.
Now let’s party!
Thanks so much for stopping by at The Farmhouse Friday Link Party #41! I hope you have a wonderful weekend and week ahead and I’ll see you back here next Friday!
