It’s been a long time since I’ve seen this flashing cursor on wordpress, but something has been calling me to post lately. I feel like a whole different person since the last few times I’ve been here. I’ve changed jobs,  moved to a new state, donated half of my belongings and started rebuying and rebuilding different parts of my life. I haven’t really been able to keep up with the blog world over the last few years, but lately I’ve found myself browsing some old favorites. So let’s think of this post as a little mic test. (Hello? Is this thing on?) and a long overdue set of some links I’ve been digging.

  • Stephanie Gerber (the blogger behind Hello Glow) posted about some great natural diffusers andddddd her new book! I have this sitting in my amazon cart just waiting to be purchased as we speak!
  • Delia Creates teamed up with Lion’s Brand yarn and fellow bloggers to promote knitting/crocheting for a cause.
  • Waking up is my last favorite part of the day and hitting snooze is my archnemesis. Maybe I’ll have to try one of these tricks tested by Apartment Therapy.
  • Man Repeller listed out 13 articles worth a read after the election.
  • A cute, printable worksheet for Thanksgiving created by Almost Makes Perfect!
  • A pair of shoes that I’m keeping my eye on.


Mood Board: Bedroom

Have I told you that we got rid of cable? We tried (and failed) to do this before, but 15 months cable-less, I think we’re over that hiccup. Most days I don’t miss it, but here and there I feel a longing for HGTV. So last time I was at my dad’s I spent a little bit of time on the couch catching up on what I’ve been missing.

Tiny Houses? Cool!

New Property Brothers? Love!

Good Bones? How do I become these women!

No, really. I want to be Mina and Karen. They’re super cool and cute and their designs are awesome. Basically I think their lives look pretty fun and I’m jealous. In fact I was so inspired that I double checked my bank account (still not enough for house flipping) and then settled on creating a mood board on Polyvore.

So I guess what I’m trying to say is that I’m available for hire should you need a professional mood board for your next reno. (I’m also available for house flipping, should you have the funds to spare.)

November Playlist

fall in NEPA and a november playlist

I made this Spotify playlist a few Novembers ago and it’s still a favorite. The vibe totally makes me happy to be cozy indoors on a late fall day, and even makes me long for a little bit of that northeast chilly weather. I can’t remember if I’ve shared this before, but even if I have, it’s too good not to post again.
