Home Sweet Home

Happy first day of Fall!

The leaves on the trees are changing color outside and football is on TV later today.

I traveled out of town this week for work to Grand Rapids, Michigan, and stayed at the luxuriantly beautiful Amway Grand Plaza Hotel for two nights. The photo below is a view of the lobby, near the Starbucks entrance. And I have to say: it is so much more impressive in person. Go there if you get a chance.

Right now is a perfect opportunity to visit Grand Rapids. Art Prize, an open art competition with the world's largest monetary prize, started Wednesday and runs through October 7th. The above photo is one favorite of the contest. Entitled "The Starting Gates", it shows horses made of apple tree branches running through the Grand River.

While the Amway Grand is beautiful and Art Prize is exciting, there is no place like home... I am so happy to be back in my own little house today, watching my big lovey work on a home improvement project while my dog lays at my feet. Tomorrow the sound of giggling (and very likely, squabbling) will return, and I cannot wait!!!

**For the final two weeks of "31 Days to Lovely Little Spaces" I'll be in the living room and master bedroom. As the weather outside gets cooler, it's nice to focus on these indoor spaces. Additionally, we made purchases this month that won't arrive until after "31 Days" concludes, and we need to prepare both rooms.
