Happy Friday 6/21/19
These Friday posts are fun for me. You too? But occasionally I forget all about them until Thursday night when I’m pulling out our old copy of ‘The Hobbit’ for story time, preparing to re-read the same pages I did two nights ago (my darling husband struggles with the use of a book mark 😆), and then bam! It hits me. It’s Thursday night!
And I get all excited to sit down at my laptop, open a beer, and have a little ‘me time’. I’m here for Friday. Let’s make it a good one!

Are McMansions making people any happier? I haven’t stopped thinking about this article. And I’m curious, how many square feet do you have per person in your home? We’re at about 580sf/person and it feels like more than enough right now. (The Atlantic)
Short-term rentals are a hot topic these days. Some love them, some hate them, but everyone seems to have an opinion. I loved reading Elsie’s thoughts on short-term rentals and the regulations they face in Springfield. (A Beautiful Mess)
A Victorian townhouse in the city. Obsessed! (Lauren Liess)
Would you, could you, ever wear the same clothes every day? My decision-paralyzed self loves the idea of a uniform! (Fast Company)
This week’s ChooseFI podcast with guest Lisa Duke really struck a chord. “We have a total HGTV ban in our household…All the tv show does is make you feel dissatisfied with your house. … Your kitchen is fine. Your bathroom is fine. Turn off the TV.” Food for thought. (Choose FI)
An upcoming kitchen reno I can’t wait to watch. I’m fascinated by the added hoops of renovating in a designated Historic home (something we’ve never done). (The Gold Hive)
Life advice for my college-bound daughter. The sweetest. (Cup of Jo)
Have a great weekend!
