taking a moment to find joy in the little things
Finally the trees in our yard are changing color and losing their leaves.
loved this pop of color peeking through the fence from my neighbor's yard
With all the rain/sun/rain, we've seen quite a few rainbows lately
Several months ago I found myself needing to rescue my laundry room from chaos and bring it into a state of calm.
Recently I took it one step further.... I found that clean and calm wasn't enough motivation for me to keep it from being a dumping space. I needed it to be beautiful. First I asked my daughter to create some original artwork. Next I asked my husband to build me a shelf, and finally I bought a few items to "decorate" the space. Now it's pretty enough and feels more like a room and less like a workspace - motivation enough to keep it looking pretty!
One of the ladies I follow on instagram posted a video of her young son (age 6ish) showing off the "cracker hat" he'd made. Basically it was a hat with a hole in the top, in which he'd stuck a cracker. He introduced the cracker hat, then proceeded to pull the cracker out. We thought it was hilarious and I might have mentioned wanting a chocolate dispensing hat.
The next day my daughter worked diligently to produce the dragon chocolate hat...
On Monday I plugged my oldest daughter's Etsy shop where she is selling some original watercolor art. In case you missed it, you can find it HERE.
Today I'm plugging my husband's newish podcast...
