I decorate a tree for my boyfriends' place since I am over there often. I put it up on Thanksgiving. He hates it when I decorate too early but you need to take advantage of the available time you have. I decorated 3 little trees and it took me 7-8 hours. December is hectic- I just want to get through it with less stress. Brendan sent me a text yesterday saying that he loved his tree.
Vintage bulbs similar to the ones on Brendans' tree that I found for $1 at the thrift store.
I scheduled a donation pick-up for Friday. I want to downsize before I suffocate myself with holiday decor. I am filled with inspirational words since I have been trying to rewrite my website- lightness, freedom, clarity, relief, joy, clean, simple, focus, order, purpose, simplify. How can I not be motivated?
Heidi Lenders' streamlined kitchen- this could be you. Donate.
I have been working on rebuilding my website for a while. Spent all day Thursday and Sunday gathering info and ideas for the rewrite. I am happy that I am giving it my best but I need to give it a deadline. Saturday.
I usually decorate for Christmas way too early and then can't wait for it to be over. So this year I'm going to chill a bit. I do love the reindeer collection- may have to thrift some new old goodies tomorrow!!!!
This used to be me: 2 Starbucks per day- now 1 every month and a half. Those shoes aren't for bike riding nor the jacket. If the purse doesn't have a long strap I won't use it- no more carrying. I heard a quote from Francis McDormand about 5 years ago that changed my view of fashion. She said, "Everyone should walk or ride a bike to work- you'd be amazed at how fashion would change."
Last night Brendan and I were laughing about how unexciting my gifts to him are. They are usually useful or homemade- not a laptop. I did see this on Apartment Therapy and knew he would love this- subway, New York, map, curvy woman.
