Cold Weather Lounging: Shopping Guide

2016-11-02_15-32-07

I’ve decided to fully embrace the cold this year (rest of 2016..I’ll change my mind winter 2017..) and stock up on the items that bring me warmth and happiness like a fresh pair of slippers or delicious dark chocolate. I have a fireplace at my home now so I envision many nights lounging by the fire in cozy joggers or pajamas! Read More »

I Own a Home!

I pulled the trigger and became a homeowner last month! I was struck with waves of excitement followed by fear reminding myself I’m responsible for this structure and all the work I want to see materialize. Luckily, I’m type A and never without a plan. And I’ll have a series of blog posts documenting my journey to make to make this home exactly what I envisioned. But first, closet (naturally)!

I’m the type of person who rewards myself with food when I’ve accomplished something..or if I’m sad or upset, I want a donut to lift my spirits.

And with a handful of changes happening, pushing me outside of my typical routine, my stress levels elevate and I find myself craving all the sugar. I’ve been giving in with a tiny slice of pie while having conversations with James while he sits opposite of me at the dining table. I think this sums up my life right now.

Last Weekend

Since I’m a clueless homeowner, my grandparents have road-tripped to Lansing the last couple weekends to help me unpack, assemble closet room furniture and handle electrical/other hard shit..and after a couple hours I suggested we pack into my car and take a quick trip to two neighboring cider mills to take a break from the manual labor.
