links + small things

A Basic Makeup Kit

How was your week? Mine moved at a slower, relaxed pace and I’m grateful for that! After a busy few weeks in December, I’m appreciating the space to think, clean, and prep for the new year. Next week Amanda and I are going away for a few days to do a planning intensive for the year. I did this by myself last year and found it to be really valuable, so I’m looking forward to doing it again and bringing her along!

I’ve started reading this book(pictured above) and am enjoying it so far! It’s made me think a lot about how I fill my time, especially my spare time when I have it!

Cute wooden spoons!

I love the yellow on this bag, gives me all the summer vibes.

I get a lot of questions about the paper art I have hung in our family room. It’s a few years old from West Elm, but here is something kind of similar! This set also looks similar as well!

Did you recently Link the bean bag chairs the boys got for Christmas? I thought they were from Wayfair but now I’m second guessing myself.

My mom found them for me at Sams Club!
