Hey y’all…hope your week is off to a good start.
Speaking of good starts…Jennifer and I were fortunate to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity this past Saturday in Atlanta. Habitat for Humanity is a nonprofit housing organization, building simple, decent, affordable housing in partnership with people in need.
We were part of a group of local Atlanta area bloggers representing “Hands of Haven”. For the past 2 years the Haven Conference (and the bloggers who attended) have partnered with Habitat for Humanity and participated in a Habitat house build.
We were very impressed with how organized team leaders were and how quickly projects came together on the homesite. We got to interact with the future homeowner – she was highly involved with the home building as well as her extended family members. It was a thrill for us to be a small part of making her dream home a reality.
Our hard work was so rewarding – it was amazing to stand back and see just how much work was accomplished in a day. We were thrilled to put our mad skills as DIYers to good use for such a deserving family.

It was fun working with Rhoda of Southern Hospitality too…

If you ever have an opportunity to volunteer with Habitat for Humanity, you should jump at the chance. You do not have to have any previous experience and they willingly train you on the spot. Another great way to help is by shopping at a ReStore Habitat for Humanity. The merchandise varies at each store location. You can find light fixtures, furniture, appliances, tools, etc.
We are so happy that we got to be a very small part in helping this family have a Good Start in their new home, creating new memories for years to come.
