This was Blake’s first weekend not having to work so we took advantage of that togetherness and time to relax! Basically, this is what I feel like buying after my husband and I have had a good quality weekend:
I know, you want one too right? For $45 it can be yours (or your next best wedding gift) here
I was in Indiana last week and something about farmland made me want to go to the gym again. I’m jumping back on the workout bandwagon and I think if I publicly announce it I will actually follow through.
I’ve picked up a couple new policies:
1. “The key to eating healthy? Avoid any food that has a TV commercial.”
2. “What you eat in private you wear in public”
I mean, that makes absolute perfect sense why didn’t I think of that??
Anyways, there was some thrifting done this weekend but I’m not ready to photograph the spoils of our trip. Blake fished, I thrifted…sort of the same thing. It was perfect.
I did pick up this brass chandelier for $8.
She’s primed now and then this week will get a final coat before making her way to our living room. I’m still deciding on a color. I can’t decide if I want to be normal and paint it black or be myself and paint it some off the wall color. Things to ponder.
I took to my chalkboard earlier in a way to give my tulips the recognition they deserve. I planted these bulbs in January and all of them survived!! I think I honestly wasn’t expecting them to grow so I just feel so special that they came through for me. I love this quote.
It reminds me of this one by Ralph Waldo Emerson.
“… To leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.”
I love to wonder across some good street art and I snapped this picture last year in downtown Greenville. It just seems appropriate today.
Count your blessings…and hug them if you can.
