there’s no place like home 🏡 this week’s happy list 💕: after searching for the perfect trenchcoat for over a year, I found (and stole) a vintage one hanging in my mom’s closet 🧥 a very special somebody coming to visit Memorial Day weekend 💖 finding “the spot” on a dog’s belly 🐶 making money moves with a high-interest savings account 💰yard sales 🧺 tea parties 👒 taking a thrifting road trip next weekend 🚙 Costco watermelon 🍉 peonies blooming 💐 what are you loving this week? ✨ #WiRLweeklylovin
that moment when you want to try the #nosugarchallenge, but it seems that everybody’s important events happen this month. With the exception of having cake and champagne at a friend’s wedding (what’s the fun of life without exceptions?!), I’ve done my best to avoid anything with added sugar, and the change in my mood and energy levels has been palpable. It’s really crazy how much added sugar we ingest (especially us Americans) - even savory things like pasta sauce have added sugar! I’m all for sweets here and there, but this past two weeks has really helped me realize just how important it is to pay attention to what I put in my body. Even if it is just taking a few extra minutes to peek at a label. Now just to tackle my love of Diet Coke 🤔 What’s a challenge you’d consider taking this coming month?
so honored to have been a bridesmaid in Grace & Sam’s wedding. Those two are a shining example of what it means to be in love. 💖 My little got married y’all!!!! Alice is next 💍😏😇👰🏻 #RingChing #WeddingBellsRingChing
My word for 2019 is Gratitude✨ It took me a while to decide. So many words sounded good - beauty, experience, patience - but after looking around at my life I decided that’s what I needed to focus on most, even if it is the most simple. Sitting down and really reflecting (Kylie style) on everything that brings joy to my life. Taking time to be with and appreciate the people I love. Making sure I reach out and express my gratitude to those around me, even if it makes me cry like a dork. It’s so easy to go through the day with your brow down and just wait for 5 o’clock or the weekend or next month. I’m the first to roll my eyes at the whole “#blessed” thing but there is something to it, no matter how corny it is. Tell somebody you love them (you count too btw)! 💕 What are you thankful for this week?
