I’m excited about all the adventures 2016 will bring. And I hope it will bring more blog posts too. 😉
There is still more I would like to do to pretty up our bathroom but I’m so excited to finally have the counter organized and tidy after months of it looking like this …
Something I’ve started doing since reading an e-book I got from A Slob Comes Clean is tackling messes like this in 5-minute increments. I rarely have the time to completely organize and clean an area so doing a little at a time keeps me from feeling overwhelmed. This particular project wasn’t that big but it’s a space we see several times a day so it feels so much better to have it cleaned up.
I am in love with my new Yellow Heart Art print. It’s fabulous because it’s true. I heart Leonora’s beautiful work and her lovely Instagram posts.
And that pretty print from YLKPhotography always brings a smile to my face. Yony is a local photographer and all around awesome person. Her photography is really inspiring.
I also really love the two glass jars I found at Target ($3 for the pair!!) which I’m currently using to hold razors and hair ties. Keeps them away from small hands and easy to find.
There is more to come before I consider this particular battle complete but Operation Declutter 2015 is going strong! I’m hopeful my next trip to IKEA will result in some updates. Fingers crossed!
I don’t know anyone who loves being outside as much as my little adventurer. We have to make the most of this warm weekend weather before the cold comes back. Here’s wishing you a weekend filled with nature and adventures!
The latest in our house?
I love simple days. Today was one of those. We played inside where it’s nice and warm. Miles and I took a nap. And we had family dinner early … at the table.
We ate leftover chili from last night. Miles ate almost all the beans from mine. This was a spicy chili too. That kid loves spicy food. I shouldn’t be surprised. This is the same toddler who likes to eat salsa with a fork when we go out …
After our family meal, it was back to the playroom. Miles played with his cars while Zach read and I wrote some letters. A simple Saturday with my family. I loved it.
Zach had a meeting after work, so Miles and I went to the store for crockpot chili ingredients. Miles always wants to sit in a “big chair” (the tables and chairs at Whole Foods) and eat a treat before we leave. So we did. And we took silly selfies. Love sweet moments with my favorite little boy.
Miles thinks our new IKEA chair is just for him. Maybe tomorrow he’ll let me try it out too.
seven eight earthquakes today. I felt four of them. We even had a few things shake off our shelves. Bizarre.
After all the shaking, I fell asleep while putting Miles to bed. Now I’m awake and doing laundry. Such a party animal. Haha!
I love all things stationery. I love writing letters. I love fountain pens and gel pens. I love decorating envelopes with doodles, washi and pretty stamps. I’m on postcrossing, Swap-bot and recently became an official member of the Letter Writers Alliance.
I have a big stash of letter sets, stickers, tape, envies, etc. dedicated to my writing
addiction hobby. (More posts to come about keeping it all sorted and contained.)
Anyway, my awesome husband got me a gift card to Paper Source for Christmas. I’m so excited, y’all!! And how adorable are their square gift card envies? I got the latest Paper Source catalog in the mail a few days ago and I’ve already got a few things in mind to buy. One can never have too much stationery.
Speaking of “square,” that also happens to be today’s prompt for #fmsphotoaday. Hooray!
