I’m still alive!


Oh my goodness gracious, y’all!!

I cannot believe that I have not posted on my blog for 7 whole days!!

I don’t think I have gone that long without posting in the almost 6 years that I have been blogging. 


Well, last week was our big Haven Conference event, and I got hit with the stomach bug to make things even crazier, so as you can imagine, getting on my computer was my last priority!


This was our third year planning the Haven Conference in Atlanta, Georgia, and it was A-MA-ZING (if I do say so myself.) Smile

It rocked my world!

I was able to spend time with some of my favorite blog friends, and met a ton of new amazing bloggers as well!

The picture below summarizes what we do for four straight days…LAUGH!


Do you recognize some of these ladies?  Well, in there you will find The DIY Show Off, Vintage Revivals, Not Just a Housewife, Thrifty Décor Chick, Just a Girl, Pretty Handy Girl, All Things Thrifty, Home Stories A2Z, The Shabby Creek Cottage, and Sawdust Girl, and me.  LOVE these women!

Here we are when we are not being silly…


I’m still trying to recover from the whole thing, but I will be sharing more with you soon about all of the fun!  I also made a new dance/rap this year that I cannot wait to share with you!  Smile

I also made this Haven Happy video for the Opening Ceremony.  It is a ton of fun to watch!

Check it out…



So I just wanted to check in and tell you I am still alive.  hee.hee.

Right now, I am just soaking up my boys and trying to get my house back in order!

I pray you have a blessed day!!!


  1. Traci – You are seriously the cutest thing! Your hair & clothes just always look put together…even when you aren’t trying :)
    I love the touches you’ve made to your home and I really like that your projects are practical. We bought a little country home back in 2010 and have been making updates over the last 4 years. It’s SO much work, but so rewarding as well.

    Here’s to hoping you have a great day, Traci!

  2. So sad I missed Haven this year, but watching the Happy video sure did put a smile on this maven’s face! Thanks for all the work you put into this awesome event and can’t wait to be back next summer!

  3. Love the video!!! That was so fun. Haven was amazing–thank you so much for all the work you all put into it. We enjoyed every minute!

  4. Traci, love love the video and the song was a perfect fit for it. You always look so pretty and I enjoy the pictures of you with the other bloggers. I’m hopping that you are feeling better.

  5. I’m so excited I got to meet you in person! I have followed for a long time and you are just as beautiful and personable in person! I even got to chat with your lovely sister a bit. Thanks for all the hard work you and the rest of the Haven team put into the conference, so that we can come together to support one another and grow our blogs! Can’t wait to do it all over again. :)
