1.) It’s not too late to get the February digital calendar wallpapers and screensavers. If you aren’t already on my email list, just click HERE to sign up. I send new calendars every month, and they are absolutely free to my subscribers. Check it out!

2.) We’ve had our current coffee table and end tables for almost 10 years, and I’m ready for a change! Here are my favorites so far:

3.) FAVORITE QUOTE: “You can’t afford anymore situations in your life that bring out the worst in you. It’s exhausting and requires too much for you to recover. You need calmness and gentleness in your life. Don’t entertain negativity and definitely don’t bring it. Choose inner peace over everything.” ~Found HERE.

4.) I wish I could bring you home tours like this one every week. I happened upon this home via another blog, and I fell in love with everything. The images are stunning, and it was a pleasure scrolling from beginning to end!

5.) MORE INSPIRATION: if you like lots of color against a neutral background, you will love this farmhouse, and this cozy coastal cottage welcomes you at the front door and transports you to the oceanside!

6.) I just found a couple of new Instagram accounts to follow that are wonderful, and give so generously of their knowledge. Katie McGinn, @urbantaproots, teaches you to garden + craft with nature, and Samantha Hansard, @vintagecuratorinteriors, is a lover of sustainable and vintage spaces. Lovely women, lovely content.

7.) LATE WINTER/EARLY SPRING FASHION FINDS:

8.) I just shared over 40 easy and budget-friendly Valentine’s Day Ideas. It’s not too late to plan something special!

9.) RESHARE: I’m a sucker for an impressive charcuterie board, but this collection of charcuterie boards with a Valentine’s Day theme just made me smile. I think they’re wonderful. If you want to try your hand at making them yourself, this box would work great.

10.) That’s it for this week. If you are wishing for the day when you wake up and the sun is shining, know you are not alone. Hang in there!

FOR ANYONE WHO WANTS
A SIMPLER LIFE.

I’ve been there. I know how you feel.
