A Reminder

Thankful for this kind gesture, and most of all for the reminder to pause from the busyness of life every once in a while and smell the flowers.
I woke up this morning, rushed the kids to get dressed, rushed to take out the trash in time, and then jumped in the car to go pickup our groceries. Along with my groceries the managerial staff at our local grocery store greeted me with this bouquet of flowers (because I was the first customer at this location to use their pickup service). Thankful for this kind gesture, and most of all for the reminder to pause from the busyness of life every once in a while and smell the flowers.

Apparently our neighbors got a rooster yesterday,
so today I “wish to seem” as if a bird didn’t wake me up
before my one year old baby this morning lol.

It may seem like a place I'd want to
put on a face mask and relax in,
but theres a stack of books about serial killers
on the nightstand that I'm ready to dive into.

Simple White Walls

One of the things I struggle with when it comes to decorating is my love for simple white walls. I’m often told it feels cold or boring, but it’s the exact opposite for me. I find it soothing and calm.

I never want to put things on my walls, but I also worry it might look too plain or like we just moved in. (I have yet to hang anything on my bedroom walls and we’ve been in that space for over a year.)

So while I’m still in the process of rearranging and figuring out this space, I’m enjoying the simplicity of my lack of wall decor since I’ll add that last. Plants always seem to work well though, so I can always fall back on just adding more plants if it feels too sparse!

A Raised Garden Bed

I made a Mother’s Day request for my husband to build us a raised garden bed. We honestly have no idea what we are doing, but we are rolling with it and excited to learn from our mistakes, and to cheer on tiny little sprouts as they emerge from the soil.
As someone who loves to cook, and loves to cook with fresh produce especially, I’m giddy over the idea of harvesting ingredients a handful of steps away from the stovetop. 
As someone who loves to cook, and loves to cook with fresh produce especially, I’m giddy over the idea of harvesting ingredients a handful of steps away from the stovetop. And we all agree that getting our hands dirty with the earth is really filling to the soul.

Here’s to a new adventure and a peony plant with one beautiful bloom that I absolutely had to toss in with our vegetables.
