It’s finally March – which means we are that much closer to warmer weather and everything winter goes away until next year. That also means new spring decor! This year, I made a promise to myself to keep with a budget every month and to become more of the ‘do it yourself’ type to also try to save money. I’ve only started out small but wanted to share my little project!
With time off over the holidays and several episodes of Fixer Upper later, I decided to take a fresh look at our bedroom. Up until that point our bedroom reflected me. Now I say that because I lived here a year before living here with Peter. I decided that with the other changes I wanted to make this year, our bedroom was one of them. I wanted to create a feeling of bliss, simplicity, and love. I challenged my self to do this on a small budget and use what was already in the room – with a few small add ons.
It has definitely been some time since I’ve posted on here. Happy 2018! The end of 2017 for me became challenging. Peter and I moved in together, we attended two weddings (one I was a bridesmaid in), work became busy in what felt like overnight with new challenges, I applied to take my professional license exams, and I networked with a recruiter for opportunities which lead to a conversation with a potential employer.
Among all of the events and challenges, I realized how stressed out and unhappy I was.
I just wanted to pop in to share something I’ve been thinking about. In the midst of what feels like a pretty overwhelming time – between preparing for Pete to move in and weddings, I’ve realized the importance of saying yes to all things spontaneous.
A month or so ago, one of my girlfriends from work (what you could call my “work bestie”) wanted to go to the beach. Now, we joke on a regular basis that we’re just going to leave at lunch and escape to the beach (we’ve never done that).
Hi guys! It’s been a while since my last post. I apologize, things have been super crazy and seem to only be getting crazier.
Last weekend, Pete and I decided to do an extended weekend getaway to Washington D.C. (we were trying to stay fairly local). We had such a nice time last year that we wanted to go back this year. So Friday morning we headed down.
