A Home Made for Hosting

  • Intentional Inspiration

I’m REALLY excited about this post! This has been in the works for months. Ever since I took a blogging hiatus, I have had this reoccurring thought and feeling that there is something changing in my world of decor/home inspiration posts. I love decorating.

Well, fast forward 3 years later, my sister is getting to experience the same excitement!!!

It works well and we haven’t changed our coaching structure for 3 years because it’s so effective. HOWEVER, after Mitch and Megan’s coaching day, we decided we wanted to offer something new…. to couples!
