First day of spring break and these two fur babies have got the right idea!
.
Too bad I’ve got an Easter “to do” list to tackle. Hoping to get home and do some lounging this afternoon!
.
Happy Friday friends!

"I am in awe of flowers. Not because of their colors, but because even though they have dirt in their roots, they still grow. They still bloom."
~D. Antoinette Foy

I just love this quote. What a perfect way to approach life.
.
I don’t know about you, but I’m convinced it’s a CHOICE to frame life and its challenges in a positive light. And it is the best self care I know!
.
Hope you are having the best Wednesday 🙌🏻🌟

Still rocking a clean desk🙌🏻🙌🏻
.
Had to document especially as i put up new fave artwork.
My obsession with @ladynoel_designs is real and I’m stalking her daily because this painting in person is insane. She is a super talent! 🤩🤩🤩
You gotta check her out if she’s new to you.

Typical rainy April day around here but I’m kinda loving the gloomy vibe. And these spring blossoms are brightening it up just enough.🌸
.
Thinking it’s time for a shelfie refresh. I’d love to try and keep our everyday plates and cups on the shelves but pretty sure Gorilla Stomp will be all 🤬🙅🏼‍♂️
.
Could always give it a try and see how it goes. Let me know the best kitchen shelfie action in the comments because I could use some inspo. 😉

That time when our desk was actually clean and I just had to document.
.
But seriously—don’t you guys find it challenging not to dump and accumulate stuff on the flat surfaces of your home? It’s something we struggle with and I have been working on diligently.
.
Making our home a peaceful sanctuary is our number one goal and sometimes we’ve made it happen on the first try —>plant room, I’m looking at you—and other times it’s been quite a process—>fireplace evolution to floating credenza.
.
The ultimate goal is to keep it calm and horizontal surfaces are so challenging —it’s just so easy to accumulate those piles of papers and other “stuff” that you are trying to figure out what to do and before you know it—there’s a cluttered mess. Am I right?
.
All that to say that I’ve made it a priority recently for everything to have a “home” and be sure it all gets back to its rightful spot every damn day.
.
And it’s making a huge difference. The other three people I live with aren’t as diligent and I find I’m usually the one attending to this but it’s soooo worth it.

What have you been doing in your home to make a difference in how you feel while you are home? I’d love to know—maybe I need to do it too.😉

Yep! It’s me in the kitchen again and loving it—all because of @HelloFresh #hellofreshpartner
.
I partnered again with @HelloFresh because I loved their meals the first time around and was excited to once again invigorate some new life into our dinners.
.
Boy, did they deliver again!! I’m honestly no amazing cook—I do it to get a meal on the table for our family. But @hellofresh really elevated our dinner experience and taught me some new skills and combinations. The 3 meals we received (on the day we chose for delivery) only took about 30 minutes to make with all ingredients pre measured and easy to follow step by step recipe instructions.
.
Honestly @HelloFresh has reawakened my desire to prepare fresh and imaginative meals again for my family! #miracle

@HelloFresh is offering my followers $80 off their first month of service with the special code “SADIESLL80”. Click the link in my bio to choose the box that is right for you!

Happy Monday!!
.
If you saw my stories yesterday then you know I was busy with starting the setup of our outdoor space and trying to sort out my rug dilemma.
.
I did end up returning both rugs I purchased because a rug truly does make the space. Kinda like this gorgeous one from @loloirugs —it has brightened and created the perfect platform for our dining table. I’m so glad I finally have the rug of my dreams here!
.
And that’s why I really want to find “the one” for outside. I thought I didn’t care, but I do 🤷🏻‍♀️😂
.
What are you on the hunt for? Maybe we can all help each other find some great sources.

It’s sooooo beautiful out today.
Perfect day to start beautifying our gazebo.
.
This flashback view is full on boho and I loved it when it was like this.
I’ve stepped away from this maximal vibe and this year the gazebo will see some changes as I’ve sold or donated a lot of what you see here.
.
Plants will still be here because duh.... #crazyplantlady 🤷🏻‍♀️😂
And the furniture will be the same but who knows about everything else.
I’m excited to see where my inspiration takes me.
.
Happy Sunday and hope you are spending it outside!!🌸🌿

Doing the happy dance over here because it’s finally Friday.🙌🏻💃🏻🙌🏻
We haven’t had our spring break yet (and not for 2 more weeks) so it’s felt like a marathon at my school. March was a breeze compared to these weeks in April. .
How about you—who has Spring Fever and wants to play hooky so badly?
The only thing that got me to work today was that it’s not too warm or sunny so I may as well get to work and make the best of it!
.
Besides I’m surrounded by little people painting rainbows 🌈—how great is that?
(Making lemonade over here 😉😂)
.
What’s getting you through today? Share with me so we can start a chain of positive thoughts!🌟🌈💗

A little #tbt coming at you from one year ago.
.
Missing this swing and surfboard vibe 🌊🌟
.
I may just have to bring them back once I put our plants out in the gazebo. Stay tuned.....

Ok. So I really don’t know why we waited so long to take out the fireplace. This floating Ikea credenza is the best thing we ever did for this space. I love how it opened up the whole space.
.
When you have an idea—sometimes just going for it turns out to be better than you imagine.
.
Althoughhhhhhhh I did have my doubts during the whole process 😬
.
Hoping you are having the most fabulous hump day!🐪
.
.
PS—thanks for the kind and supportive comments on yesterday’s soul-baring post. I know it’s not for everyone but thanks for being there.💗

A little springtime tulip bouquet coming at you because it’s bringing so much joy 💐
.
You’re welcome 😊 .

Yesterday afternoon I found out that an elderly cousin had passed away.
And I found it out from Facebook which was so weird but I guess a sad sign of the times.
.
She lived at a distance (which all of my extended family does) and I didn’t even realize she had been ill. The last time I saw her was 12 years ago at my grandmother’s funeral.
.
When I found out the news I felt more than the “reach out to your loved ones because you never know” feelings.
.
It brought me right back to a time in my life when I regularly visited my family as a girl and teen. It made me miss my grandfather and great aunts and uncles who’ve already passed. It brought me to a place where I remember feeling cherished and deeply loved. (So so lucky I know)
I haven’t felt that way in years.😕
.
So while I’m grieving for this special lady who always made me feel special, I’m also grieving that little girl who had felt so cherished.
.
I share this not for your sympathy but I plan to use the information my soul has given me as an opportunity to grow and to nurture myself as I wasn’t aware I was so deeply missing this in my life. With affirmations and meditation, I’m hoping to heal this wounded place in my heart.
.
I’m totally unsure how to wrap this up —but if you are interested in having a convo about soul healing send me a DM. Sooooo not an expert here but we can support each other in our personal healing journeys.💗
And if you have any helpful resources I’d love it if you could share 🙏
