Wow, what a weekend! On Friday I shared a few of my thoughts on recent events, so feel free to hop on over and check that out if you are interested. My goal is to keep this a little bright spot on the internet for you to come and find joy, rest, and escape… so hopefully this post does just that!
Truthfully, Ryan and I have been self-distancing for about a week now, because it’s not a good idea for him to get sick, so y’all we’re 5 days in… and I’ve gotta tell ya, we’ve decided it’s kind of like camp! We’re utilizing every square inch of our house and neighborhood, baking lots of good food, grilling out, and trying new recipes! And when we get a little stir crazy we hop in the car and take a drive… overall just enjoying the time together. We’ve done this before, we can do it again!
I set up a highlight on my Instagram to provide a little “homebody” inspiration! I’ll keep updating it daily. It’s not rocket science, but hopefully it will be encouraging. Also, I’ll write a post this week on some activities that have worked for me in the past. But in the mean time… the show must go on!!

Whether you are now homeschooling your kids, working from home, or both… you gotta show up in your best sweats!
A New Read
I stocked up on a few new books this past week and I am so glad I did! Anna K is one of the ones I picked up and woooow, it’s good! A modern retelling of Leo Tolstoy’s Anna Karenina, it’s very Gossip Girl-ish and all about wealthy, unsupervised, racy, teens… which is kind of my favorite genre! ha!

Kitchen Aid Mixer Bowl
I’ve been doing a LOT of baking around here lately (might as well try out all of those recipes I’ve been dying to make!). Anyway, I’ve got to tell you, switching out my Kitchen Aid Mixer Bowl to this pretty white bowl has made me SO HAPPY. It’s the little things, you know!?
As you know, now more than ever, supporting small businesses is super important! So when you are looking for a new hobby to try out at home, search Etsy! There are TONS of of kits and ideas. Like this adorable needlepoint canvas that is kind of perfect for this season, don’t you think?!
