I am not sure how we can be in the first week of May already, but here we are. Since the calendar says May, has the weather warmed up in your area yet?

Before I share a few things I found interesting this week, I want to first say thanks to all of you who have left me comments on my last post where I asked for exterior landscaping ideas for the front of my house. You guys rock and are filled with such great ideas.  I am so glad I asked you. :-)

I also want to thank you for all the comments you left and are still leaving me about my new blog photo where I am sporting my natural grey hair color.

I love reading all of these comments, but have not had a chance to respond yet. I try my best. My oldest daughter is getting married in June, so I have been a little pre-occupied making sure I am getting everything on that “to-do” list done.

Onto what I found interesting and inspiring this week:

  1. Re: Gaines article
    I think the author of the article basically was saying that people shouldn’t put them on a pedestal; that their time with their children may work for them, but as much as is on their plate, they no doubt sacrifice family time along the way. I think he was saying “be reasonable” when taking their word for ALWAYS putting family first.
    The comments following the article are, for the most part, why the article was published. The Gainses’ have millions of followers with a cult-like devotion who cannot stomach any criticism of their idols.

  2. Wen you mentioned the porch I knew it was going to be Beth’s. Beautiful!
    Love your bucket list.
    I’m a reader and don’t put much into articles, I think Chip and Jo do a fantastic job with the children and everything they do. I’ve read all of their books.
    I think they are a very blessed family.
    Really like your post today. Congrats! On the wedding. I know it will be beautiful and can’t wait to see what you do.

  3. re: Gaines folks. I find it hard to to fathom that anyone would deny that having that many things going on is a lot to juggle with 5 children and a farm.

  4. Interesting information. Regarding Chip and Jo “walk a mile in my shoes” to know what realky goes on in someone’s life. And we are not here to judge others. Always enjoy your blog Diane. I’m sure you are very busy with the upcoming wedding.

  5. Does the writer of the Chip and Joanna Gaines article understand the concept of delegating? I think most people realize that don’t do it all.

    1. Hi Hannah – I wonder if the writer of the article was asked to write the piece without mentioning that Chip and Joanna have a lot of help on the business side of their life so that they can be with their family as much as they want. Chip didn’t bring it up either in his response. If either the writer or Chip brought this up, I don’t think there would be a controversy.
