Join eight of my friends and me as we celebrate loving on your home, friends and family through the holidays.

You will be encouraged as you hear honestly from each woman about the times things did not go as planned during their holidays.

You will hear honest discussions about their own journey of hospitality.

You will walk away inspired as you hear about the traditions and special moments from their childhood and how they create special moments with their families today.

You will be able to watch beautiful videos with gift giving ideas, decorating projects and favorite family recipes.

We all want to create authentic moments with our friends and families.

We all desire for the ones we love to leave our homes knowing that they were welcomed and loved.

My hope is that this course will help you slow down and find the joy and beauty in the holidays.

*****

*There will be 30+ project videos

These will be incredible videos that include everything from cooking, gift giving and decorating

*Tons of beautiful house photos from each of the nine women

*Supply Lists and PDFs for each project

*A digital recipe book of the recipes shared in this course



I know you don't want to miss this one! Leave me a comment on this post telling me what your favorite thing is about this time of year.
I will pick 5 random winners and announce back here on Friday! Happy labor day!

xoxo

I love the cooler temps. I love the crispness in the air. I have some more energy as a result of not being zapped by the heat and humidity. I love the college football games. Plus my birthday is right around this time of year.

I absolutely love fall for many reasons. We start to prepare for the oncoming winter by making our home cozier, warmer in the colors we decorate with, the lighting we chose. The smells seem to entice you to come inside and sit awhile. The food does the same. Everything seems to be preparing us for comfort and a long winters nap :)

Kara said...

First off thank you for hosting this awesome give-away.

I love the Fall because it feels like "new" again, that crisp feeling that is in the air. Also I have to say that I love Halloween so that helps. LOL Also love wearing a light jacket, jeans and my boots. :-)

Thanks again and have a blessed day! :-)

eorban said...

Thank you for offering this giveaway. Fall is by far my favorite time of year! I love the crisp, cool air, the apples, the pumpkins, the beautiful leaves..... :)

Tanya said...

I love the change of seasons, starting back to (home)school, and all of the fall produce-apples, pumpkins, and mums!

pballard said...

I have been entering all over for this class. I would love to win a spot in this class. This fall is a little different as last fall at this time both my parents were here. They both passed within 7weeks of each other. Normally during the dark rainy cold winter I always had a place to go warm up, grab a cup of coffee, catch them up on my children, and grandchild, get some love and a hug. I am struggling this year. I dont want the couch to call my name more than it should. This class would be great.. I do love how the color changes with fall coming. I like to decorate my porch. Thanks for the chance.

Lisa said...

My favorite thing about this year is layering - clothing and decorating. :-)

Ellen Kepas said...

I love the cooler weather, gathering acorns that have fallen from the oak tree, colorful leaves, crisp apples, sweaters, and high school football games.

Angela Betlewicz said...

Fall is my favorite time of year! Kids are back in school exercising their brains, football, chili cookouts, Fall festivals, cooler weather, AND the decor is fabulous!

Shabby Sheshe said...

I seriously love fall most of all. The chilly nights, warm candle light, roasted fall vegetables, long walks after a rain with the smell of wet leaves. Bliss!

Pat Friend said...

I love the cool crisp weather with the changing color of the leaves. Football games are one of my favorite things especially college. Time to make warm soups for dinner to share with family and friends. Decorating for the holidays is one of my favorite things especially when friends and family come over to my home.

First time in eleven years to not be working in retail during the holidays! Though I loved the process of helping other people prepare for their celebrations, I am excited about what the holidays have in store for our family in our new home in the Pacific Northwest. Also really appreciate the generosity of time, talent and creative ideas that all these wonderful ladies offer through this course. Thanks Melaine!

Erin Kaven said...

I think my favorite thing about the holidays is the upholding the traditions that bring me back to my family who are no longer with us, such as the baking of a certain bread my grandmother and mother both made, and the memories of my children, at younger ages, as I unwrap all the cherished ornaments that they created.

Becky said...
