Coffee and flowers……

image

This hasn’t been the greatest week. Seems like I’ve needed more coffee than ever and I hate feeling dependent on coffee to get me through the day. So if you have somw tips, please shoot them over. How do you stay energized all day? Isn’t the first image beautiful? Just a few Springy pops of color in a white kitchen. You can get this diy tutorial of the succulent planter here.

Let’s try this again. Weekend plans..

image

Several times this week I tried blogging from my phone only for my wordpress app to have failures uploading. Usually it saves and I try again but this week none saved. I was too irritated to try reposting but I’m going to this time. Happy weekend!!!

I plan on catching some zzz’s. Not sleeping in but taking naps…

image

I plan on reading a ton…getting rid of magazines…

I plan on getting my dvr percentage down along with a diy project and plan on doing all activities from the couch. These living rooms both have cozy snuggly sofas that look perfect for lazy Saturdays. Do you prefer sofa lazy bumming or the bed? I feel bad staying in bed. I have to get dressed and get up even if I plan to stay inside…

I usually prefer weekends filled with fun stuff but soon I will spend mine in the Chicago area on a design project so better enjoy the home life while I can. Hope you all have a wonderful weekend with some relaxing squeezed in.

To open the windows and patio doors and let the warm breeze in…

One small thing I look forward to is making hot chocolate at work. It’s something I do during cold seasons and a small thing that makes me happy. I limit myself to one cup so I really savor every sip. I gueas the same can be said for life in general. We are all busy…we’re grown but often life flies by too fast the older you get. So I am trying to be present in the moment a bit more. We can be focused and driven while making sure we secure our futures but try to be in the moment sometimes and take life in…

Monday Morning Inspiration 1.13.14

image

We all like to buy things…some of us nicer things….some of us luxury things. Does the moment of happiness after you’ve made a purchase fade? Do you have buyer’s remorse or go back to feeling the way you felt prior to the purchase? I read an article on happiness that talked about making a point to have things to look forward to everyday. I love that idea especially because some days aren’t the most anticipated *coughs*Mondays*coughs*.

Often times buying something tangible can create a rush or pleasant feeling but those things aren’t usually what keeps you happy or makes the most impact on your life. When we dig deep, the true happy moments aren’t things or items but feelings from simply living. The bonds made, goals accomplished, dares challenged to the moments of silence, calm and peace.

Monday morning cookies and dessert with coffee and hot chocolate sounds like a plan to me. Maybe I should do this every Monday….tradition for the new year.
