Welcome to the third week of Bricks ‘n Blooms Weekly!
It’s been a great, but busy week here!
The weather got a lot colder and the leaves are done coming down so we finished fall-clean up.
And this week, I’m starting my first day of being 49…forever. Go me!

More Random Things Happening Behind the Scenes at Bricks ‘n Blooms
- My older two daughters came home from school this week. I’m really happy to have everyone back under one roof again.
- It’s my birthday on Tuesday. Some years it lands on Thanksgiving, but this year it’s a few days before. I’m turning 49 so next year will be the big one! But I think 49 is a good number so I’m sticking with that one.
- Christmas decorating is in full swing here! Given the tightening of gathering restrictions, we scaled down our Thanksgiving plans so it’s Christmas or bust now in the house. It’s all starting to come together but I need to pick up a few more things to complete the look.
