Simply Stated

Hey there!

We’re back home from an amazing week of teaching and sharing at The Social Gathering Retreat.

It was our first time teaching our “Beginning to Blog” class and it was a success! YAY!

Both the in-person and virtual attendees were so wonderful to work with. And they all were thrilled with how much they learned!

Which makes us so happy!!!

Did you catch any of our stories on social media when we were in Destin this past week?

Have you ever been to that part of Florida? It was the first time for both of us. And we agreed that it definitely won’t be the last!

It’s just beautiful…the white sand beach…the turquoise water.

While we were away we still had a full week on the blog…

Anne shared how to build a window valance as an awesome alternative to traditional curtains.

Then we got down with some organizing since this time of year is the best time to get all the things decluttered.

AnnMarie organized and styled her husband’s walk-in closet.

There’s even a FREE printable!
