Friday Favorites

I don't think I have been happier to see a Friday in quite some time, for some reason this week has been jam packed.  We also have a really busy weekend, but I think it seems more relaxed when you have plans on the weekend so it never seems to stress me out.  I have been going non stop since last Monday, and even though I love it, I am super tired today.  There is something about getting back to a schedule after a few weeks off that is just killing me this time.  But with coffee, lots of cold water, and some good music I am doing it. 

And my new favorite coffee for the house ... a lavender latte.  Soo yummy!


Smart Shopping

One of the decisions I made this year was to make smart choices when it comes to adding to my wardrobe.  Since I am always seeing new things in the world of blogging it is tempting to add so many things to my closet, but that is not smart shopping on my part.  I am at the age and time in my life when I do not need a ton of things so the things I purchase need to be thought through on my part and something I will have for a while and wear time and time again.  I usually gravitate towards this idea but I can also veer off the path pretty easily so I need to be intentional about my purchases.  I have a running list of things I would like to add to my wardrobe and I am always looking to fill these needs but other than that my "wants" need to be carefully thought out. 


2019 In Review

Wow, 2019 was a full year, both personally and professionally, and all in all a great one.  Although it was the hardest year I have ever had personally it was also the best year for the blog and me professionally.  I think the way they work together is so beautiful, as I relied on the blog to carry itself for the third quarter of the year so much and I can not tell you how pleased I was when things worked out so well.  I basically had to close my computer and step away from it for more than two months and yet it was still an amazing year for me.  That ... and you all ... is so incredible.


Swapping Out The Old

It's that time of year that can be very awkward, the after holidays and January time when we never really know what to wear, how to put back our furniture and how to accessorize our home.  I know I am not the only one who feels it but when the tree is gone and the holiday plaids are put away ... what do we do to make our homes and selves "right" for this time of year.  I even noticed as I was putting the tree away that my furniture placement might need some fluffing.  I always seem to move things around after the holiday decor is put away and I feel the need to change up our house.  And then what to wear ... do I use my new leggings and pullovers as a uniform or actually get dressed in something "real" to tackle the days. There are so many questions.


Do You Summit?

I truly can not believe it is almost Summit time .... its just shy of a month away.  As you have heard me chat many times, The Southern C Summit is my very favorite conference.  I have been going consistently for years and did not even skip when the times were stressful at home because it feeds me so very much.  I am thrilled this year to be heading out again in mere weeks for another amazing packed few days of connecting, collaborating, and creating! 


All The Hearts For Weezie Towels

I have been using Weezie Towels for about a year now and I can tell you once you use them you can instantly tell a difference between your old towels and your Weezie ones.  I love my Weezie towels and how soft and luxurious they are.  I use them regularly and even though we have two sets I get a little grumpy when I see someone else in the house with one of my towels.  I know, not so nice, but I am just being very honest.  They are that good.  I am super excited to share with you a new limited edition design for Valentines Day that can be ordered immediately ... the darling heart icon. 

So basically I am sharing an amazing towel and telling you it can also be ordered with a heart ... is there anything better I could tell you?  Maybe even gift a set of makeup towels ... keep reading!


Intentional Mornings + Linen Pajamas

This year I have choose to be incredibly intentional in every single thing I do.  I know that sounds simple but for me and last year it is so much deeper. I always choose a word for the year and this year I was very specific about my word and what I wanted my days and year to look like.  I want it to be full of purpose, deeper in both relationships and personal, and very specific about what I do and purchase for our home and my closet.  I don't think I have made bad decisions that need to be changed, but I do think living my days with purpose and intention will be so good for me and my life.


Cheers To 50!

I think there is a part of me that is in shock that yesterday I celebrated my 50th birthday.  I was so ready to embrace 2020 and let last year go.  As much as it taught me it was the absolute hardest year of my life and some of it is still hanging around.  Its ok ... I am working through it all but knowing all the stuff happened last year and this year is a blank slate makes me feel so much better!
