Life With The Carneys

Life with The Carneys

April 17, 2020


Happy Friday, friends! What fun plans do you have for the weekend at home?!

If you’re new to Life With the Carneys, click HERE to read the first one before you get started! If you’ve already been wonderful enough to follow along for the Life with the Carneys series fun, welcome back!

Here’s a look at what we’ve been up to the last couple of weeks:

This week officially kicked off eLearning for Jackson. He was very excited to start seeing videos from his teachers and doing some virtual meetings with his friends. Both Jackson and Harper have started to say how much they love and miss their teachers and friends, it makes me so sad they’re missing out on the rest of the school year with them. While it has been, at times, an overwhelming influx of info from the schools, I’m so grateful they’re working so hard to support us!

I’ve received quite a few messages through Instagram about this in the last few days! The beginning of last week I kicked off the #abcsathomechallenge! Each day has a prompt that corresponds with a letter of the alphabet which is shared in InstaStories. I’ve had such fun doing it and seeing how everyone interprets the prompt! What I’m hearing most through messages is that someone missed starting at the beginning or that they’re bummed they missed a prompt and feel like they can’t jump back in. SO not true!! This is definitely not about perfection or having to complete the whole thing, it’s just a way to have fun together!! So if you’ve followed along and haven’t joined in, head to my stories and start/jump back in. I can’t wait to see what you share!  🙂

I’ve had some fun collaborating with my friend Christy of Creative In Bloom these last couple of weeks. Virtually, of course! She’s in the process of updating her website so we’re working together to create some photos for her to display her gorgeous new invitation suites. I’m so appreciated having something to do besides chase toddlers around!!

My sweet friend Sam from The Lettering Grove also sent me over some beautiful samples of her work I can use for styling. Those plus the new items I purchased and I’m in styling heaven!! Now if only I could source some fresh flowers, I would be totally content!

My wedding season was supposed to kick off in the next couple of weeks. I am thinking SO much about my April and May couples who have had to postpone their weddings and the June couples who are starting to have the same discussion. My heart breaks for all them, I know it was not an easy decision to make. This season has brought so many changes, I can’t wait to come out on the other side to celebrate these amazing couples!!

Much love friends,
