Happy Friday! Thank you for the very kind response to our pregnancy announcement on Valentines Day! Although Garrett and I couldn’t be more excited to meet our baby girl, I’m pretty sure we’re going to be busy for awhile with a four-year-old and two kids under two. Growing up in a family of 4 kids, I had two siblings within 15 months of me (my twin sister and my next older brother), and it was just SO fun! I’m really happy for our kiddos to have similar sibling closeness, but now that I’m a mother, I wonder how my parents stayed sane with so many toddlers in one house. Wish us luck 😉 And if you’re in a similar situation, please drop a comment and let me know how you manage to keep your sanity (or just get the laundry washed) with so many little people!
Since it’s Friday (!!!) I have lots of great links for you. Grab a cup of coffee and dig right on in!
Lindsea‘s Instagram account is a constant source of inspiration for me. Not only does she own an old farmhouse in the PNW (!!!) but she collects and sells antiques and has the most amazing decor style. I’m not the only one who thinks so, either…Country Living featured her home last summer!
It’s President Day weekend meaning there are lots of sales! Here are a few things I’m eyeing to spruce up our home for Spring: a beautiful vase, pillow cover (it’s 70% off!), this planner, a capiz hanging light (for baby girl’s nursery), a pretty phone cover, and really everything at Anthropologie (their sale stuff is 40% off). Plus Nordstrom is up to 40% off and Williams Sonoma is offering 20% off one item.
Have you guys heard of “hygge” (pronounced HOO-ga) yet? It’s the Danish mindset of living cozy at home through the long winter. And I’m 100% on board! Check out how a couple folks are implementing hygge in their own homes: here and here.
I’m so excited to be pregnant at the same time as one of my favorite bloggers, Julia of Chris Loves Julia. Also, my lady friends Beyonce, Lauren Conrad, Ciara, and Amal Clooney are also expecting…in case you were wondering.
I thought Garrett and I were pretty savvy on how to earn income off your home, but we’ve never tried this. What a great idea, Stefanie!
This is one job of a President (and their staff) that you probably never thought of. The article is intense and amazing and worth a read.
