I think this has been my happiest week of 2021. Is that a thing? A “happy week”. I don’t know. But this week was for me. And man did it feel good
I think it’s the combination of the snow melting, the sun shining more and some really GREAT conversations with all of you (about SOO many topics; friendships, body image, MONEY! So much good content on here this week).
Plus I think the fact that I’m still not drinking is snowballing into some amazing effects (ps..for anyone interested, this is the book that pushed me to give sobriety a try). My sleep feels great. I’m waking up on my own. I feel lighter and more focused and clearer than I have in months. I wasn’t planning on continuing with this for so long – but I’m not quite ready to give up this feeling for a glass of wine.
We also made some major progress on our kitchen this week. I shared a little more about our kitchen renovation here. It took us a lot longer than I had anticipated getting our layout finalized. But I think we FINALLY have it all worked out. We’re hoping to give our cabinet maker the green light in the next day or two, and then get started with a demo in early April! I am giddy excited. I can’t wait to show you our plans, and even more excited to get in there and COOK.
I’ve been really into our house lately too. Anyone else? Spending a little more time trying to make it cozy and happy. It’s been really fun.
We got a new chandelier in our dining room (that I don’t think I’ve shown you yet), a few new vases for in there too (and this Gray Malin photo that I’ve wanted for years. JP and I went here for our 10 year anniversary so it has a special meaning). We’ve been putting off doing anything in our dining room until our kitchen reno was done – but there were a few things that I just knew I wanted (like that art and light) so I just went for it.
I also picked out a new piece of artwork I want for our bedroom. How gorgeous is this? I found it on Etsy. It’s a photo of a beach in southern California at sunset and just reminds me of our time in Califonia. I’m hoping we get back there in a few months, but until then, I’ll have this.
I also found a few other great finds lately, including a great new vase from Target that I filled with some gorgeous Lilly’s this week as a birthday treat., my favorite new coffee table book, and a few other odds and ends that I linked here.
