So glad you could join me Lakeitha! Thanks for reminding us about what is really important when it comes to our kids...time together.

Great guest post! I love the idea of the birdhouses.

Lakeitha, I think you are doing a great job with your house. Those colors sound wonderful. And yes, that trick with adding black for grounding really does work. I stained my railings a dark mahogany after we moved in here. I couldn't stand the honey oak that they were, so I'd definitely say to go for it. You can go deep brown or black & make them look so much better.

Great post Lakeitha, my girls are adults now but they still value that one on one time with their old mom.Sometimes we get so caught up on things that we forget that kids require our presents more than anything else.
