Happy Friday.

April 6, 2018


We started plans for our laundry room in the basement. Every home project takes weeks to complete as I am learning, but the thought of having space wider than the size of the actual washer and dryer is all the motivation I need. Pinned a few ideas to get us started here.



Spring break is this week, and it timed well with spring weather arriving in Atlanta. (Thank you Lord, because all of the energy with no outdoor time is a dangerous combo.) We took the kids to the Botanical Gardens to see the tulips in bloom and the orchid display. They have so many fun things for little ones to do as well. I love this city (minus the traffic).

Veronica’s birthday is next week, and her written wish list was precisely this: stick on earrings, roller blades, and a beanie baby notepad. I think she was supposed to be born in 1996. Made my heart flutter. She just wants to have an American Girl Doll lunch with her nana, aunts, and cousins. I have been saving my Felicity doll for her, and I think this is the year to pass it on. I can hardly wait to see her reaction!

A few really good sales going on this weekend: Additional 40% off sale items at Anthro (ie: this duvet is such a steal!) and 20% off home items, 25% off any item at West Elm, and 25% off patio furniture at Target.


We have loved reading everyone’s stories who entered our mentorship giveaway! It has been such a neat way to get to know some of you. A few new to me small businesses I have discovered through your insta-stories: Notebooks & Honey, MariMac Designs, and Willow and Burl. You still have time to enter through next week in case you missed the announcement post.


Gabe and I would love to do a weekend away for our 10th anniversary trip coming up in June. We always dreamed it would be Europe, but the reality is we need a new family car, so that won’t be happening. Any marvelous ideas within the U.S.? I am all ears! This airbnb is calling my name, but maybe just a local treehouse stay Swiss Family Robinson style would do;)

Okay, time to do some spring cleaning I have been avoiding. TGIF!

    We have friends from NYC that did part of their honeymoon in these: http://freespiritspheres.com/. They said it was completely amazing and they’d do it again in a heartbeat. I also love Treebones Resort south of Big Sur in ÇA – great place, all yurts buy they also have a hot tub and sushi bar that overlooks the Pacific. Have fun and congrats!

  • Have you been to Austin?! I am literally writing this from Austin right now, the hubs and I were able to get away for the weekend (literal 48 hours). It’s just a 2 hour flight from ATL, the food scene is AMAZING, there is an awesome river/park running through the city and it’s just overall cool. My first time and I’m already looking forward to heading back. May be a bit hot in June though … not that we aren’t used to heat and humidity.
