Hope you had a great Monday! I am unwinding by reading a few pages from my book (Rising Strong by Brené Brown) and journaling some thoughts and feelings. Honestly, I am not feeling like myself today but I have faith in brighter days ahead.
One of the questions I remember my father-in-law asking after giving him a full tour of our townhouse was, “Is this what you always imagined your house to look like?”
I don’t know if he was confused by the layout or if he was truly mesmerized but I gave him the short answer. The short answer was, “Yes. We always knew we wanted to live in the city so a townhouse seemed the most fitting for now.”
Finally – a normal weekend in Houston. Happy to have set this weekend for myself. No plans, no agenda. The house is clean, laundry is folded, and got some work done.
I took the plunge and decided to try Hello Fresh for the first time last year. I was first tempted to try this meal-kit provider because my favorite bloggers were constantly raving about it, and one day, I received a coupon in the mail. This coupon was what pushed me over the edge to finally give it a try.
Happy 2020!!! Cheers to the beginning of a new decade!!! I am SO excited for my goals this year! I have yet to complete my vision board, but other than that, I’ve already jotted them down in my planner.
It is currently Sunday evening and I am on my bed with a heat pad against my back. It isn’t the hottest start (actually – this heating pad is pretty freaking hot) to the new year. If you follow along on IG stories, you know I injured my back at the gym yesterday. It was not pleasant. I hope this pain is temporary so here’s to a quick recovery.
Wow! What a year! I know it’s not quite over yet but I want to share these words now because I have an exciting thing to share before the year actually ends!
I’ve said it more than once, and I’ll continue to say it, I am SO THANKFUL for 2019. I have enjoyed every step of the way. My heart is seriously filled with gratitude.
Thank YOU for being a part of my blogging journey. Thank YOU for hanging out with me through IG stories. Thank YOU for also sharing and letting me into your life! I know we consume a lot of information in one day, and ultimately a personal choice to follow along, so thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Happy hump day!!! Hope you’re having a fantastic morning! Christmas Day is exactly one week away and I can hardly wait! Honestly, I am counting down until Friday because that is when my mini vacay begins.
Hello, December! Wow, wow, wow! Another month has come and gone! (I know that’s how life works but it’s crazy to me how fast it actually goes!) I cannot believe we will be welcoming a brand new year in less than 30 days. I am so excited and ready to see what 2020 holds. This year was one for the books and couldn’t be more grateful for everything in life.
Sooo excited to share Black Friday finds this year! Last year, I shared picks through Instagram stories since we participated in the chaos, but since we aren’t joining the madness this year, I am doing things a little bit different.
For this blog post, you can expect only a compilation of deals happening at my favorite retailers. To see all of my actuals finds (or picks), please head over to this page. You’ll see a collection of products I’ve picked that are currently on sale or will be on sale on Black Friday.
This one is for all of my DIY-ers. One of the things I try to do around the holiday season is create pieces that will easily transition from Thanksgiving to Christmas. Thanksgiving is literally around the corner – three weeks to be exact. If you have yet to decorate for the season, or you are hosting this year, I have found the perfect items to create a simple yet elegant decoration piece.
