These Free Fall Farmhouse Decor Printables are close to my heart, because it is a year that I am more thankful than I have ever been for my family. I created several trying to decide which one would go best in our home and I think I am at the point that I want to create more and put them all over the place. My oldest even wants one in her room, so be on the lookout for that (:
God has been so faithful to heal my husband through means of a stem cell transplant. Last year, the last week in September he was diagnosed with a relapse of leukemia. If you haven’t read it, I wrote a post for Her View From Home on the words relapse and my thoughts on where we were. I literally can’t even read it anymore, it just makes me cry and remember those feelings like it just happened all over and I don’t think I could ever bear that again.
All that to say he did a round of chemo in October and we came home in November and then back again to the transplant floor in December for him to start another round of chemo and then get the transplant.
Today he is at one of his follow up appointments and I am anxious to hear how his bloodwork looks. I always get a little bit antsy at home waiting to hear. It’s been a long several months and If I am being honest I am weary. I don’t have another word for it, but I am at the point of needing to talk to someone other than a 4-year old, and two 2-year olds (one that’s non-verbal) but also I don’t want to out of fear that I’ll be that socially awkward girl that hasn’t seen her friends in 9ish months and has been what feels like outcast just a little bit.
All that to say, getting out our Fall decor has livened me up a bit. I absolutely love fall and winter. Actually I love all the seasons and used to love living in a place that we got to experience them all. But now living in this never ending Summer it’s been hard. I think the Lord gives us seasons because He designed us to need the change. It’s a healthy and organic change that no one else can create but Him and it’s a breath of fresh air each time they blow in. I love them. BUT this “Covid-19” season seems to be lasting forever and I needed to get out of it… somehow.
So, enters all the Fall decorations out of the garage and into the house. Since last year I felt like I missed Thanksgiving and Christmas and honestly in the past 4 years we have only spent one of those years not in a hospital on Christmas day, I decided to decorate and start celebrating a little bit early. And since my birthday is next week, I’ll call it an early gift to me to find some fresh air in all of the fall (faux) blooms whisking through my house.
So, without further adieu, here they are: I’ll update with pictures in my house as soon as I get finished decorating.
