My front porch


This is minimalism at its best. All this took took was a fresh coat of paint and a garage sale find for $80 bucks.

Sitting on a porch is the best therapy a person can get.

Life can be simple if you truly want it to be. Less is definitely more.

My Pinterest bedroom


Yup. I finally followed through on some design ideas I saw on Pinterest. ”This is one half of my bedroom and I must say I’m quite impressed with myself. No I’m not a narcissist lol.

Comforter set: Homegoods, $60 bucks

Headboard: Wayfair, $107 bucks

Wall prints(made from fabric: Goodwill $4 bucks for ALL!

Curtains: $7 a panel, Boscovs.

I’m sooo happy!!!

I did it over the course of 3 paychecks but I still made it happen and so can you.

My theory is that you can’t deplete yourself doing it or it’s no fun. There are so many ways to be smart about decorating.

Good luck!!!

A perfect hygge Sunday morning


It’s the little things….

A perfect cup of coffee

Your favorite candle burning

The smell of bacon cooking

Rain hitting the windows

And your kids sleeping safe in their beds….

Two Steps Back


In our mind we think that when things go wrong, we have no luck or we are just doomed. This isn’t the case. In order for things to come together they must fall apart. And, in the current situtaion or circumstance that you are going through, that just might very well be a good thing.

If you are in a relationship that you think is irreconciable but you still love that person the best thing to do to make it better is to sometimes walk away for a while.

There are so many unknowns in life. Everyday, every second, every moment of your life is an unknown. My philosophy is to just roll with it. Don’t stress. Don’t fret. Don’t worry. It is a waste of precious time. There is only so much you can do to change the inevitiable. That is why the word inevitable is so important. You truly do not have control over what is destin to come. So….just let it happen. Learn from your mistakes that created that inevitable and critique for the future.

I’ve change the tempo of my blog so many times but I guess I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s just a compilation of my life. The good, the bad, and the inevitable lol.

My header pic is of my new apartment. It’s a shot of my sun/bedroom and my cat Moo Moo. I love my simple life and over the course of oh I’d say the past ten years is when I really started to think about what it’s all about.

Stop. Think about what’s important and enjoy it.

Until next post…. have a great day and be kind. blessings
