Dirt Road Adventures – An Entertaining Week

Hey friends, I am writing today’s post ahead of time because I’m spending time with some dear friends this weekend.

This past week was more about entertaining and DIY projects around the farmhouse.

If you don’t like entertaining, I encourage you to try it. Entertaining is not so much about the food or the table setting as it is about gathering friends and family to make lasting memories.

Friendships are so important for our mental and physical health. Encouraging those friendships takes planning events together. If you aren’t comfortable entertaining in your home, meet friends for dinner or coffee.

You might enjoy Planning Girlfriend Time for more inspiration.

This is a look back at all my adventures this past week.

I am so thankful to each subscriber to my YouTube Channel. The Fall Industrial Farmhouse Tour allowed me to reach a milestone of 1,000 subscribers.

If you missed the video tour, I hope you’ll check it out and subscribe if you haven’t already.
