My First Post!

Welcome to Sincerely, Sweetpea! I am so excited that you are here to read my very first blog post! For the longest time, I have been drafting a list of projects and post ideas for this blog, but then, all the sudden, the time came to pick what I was going to use as my very first post. For me, this was a real task because firsts can be rough but, they can also be exciting. Firsts are difficult because they are unfamiliar and un-routine, like the first day of school. The first day is full of syllabi, rules, blahblahblah, but, after a few weeks, you’re used to a routine, know the fastest way to your classes, your locker combination, where to sit at lunch and it’s not so scary anymore. You’re saying to yourself “I’ve got this!”.

So, with that being said, I’ve got my backpack full of new,  untouched school supplies and I ready for the first day of BLOGGING!
Fall is my favorite time of year. I mean really, what is not to love? It is the one time of year when it is acceptable to put pumpkin in everything. Can I get an AMEN! This year, plaid is all the rage and that is fine by me because I live for a good plaid shirt! While I was browsing the fabric section of Hobby Lobby, I came across some awesome plaid fabric in the apparel section. My first thought was “This would make an awesome blanket scarf” and then I thought “Tablerunner!”.

 The plaid is, well, plaid so, I layered it with a calmer, solid color underneath. The black tray was a last minute target dollar spot find that I gussied up a bit and I’m so happy I happened to run across it because I think it definitely completes the look.

We’ve made it through! I’ve got this! Thanks so much for stopping by!
