Strawberry Spritzer!



Summer is here! It’s July 4th and while we're supposed to be celebrating America, we’re talking about the earthquake and watching Stranger Things Season 3!

Rustic table transformation.



Before and after sanding.

I’m not entirely sure why it’s taken me so many years to revamp a table. I mean, I’ve thought about it for awhile, but actually taking the time to salvage a piece of furniture vs. buying brand new, has been a game changer.

Happiness.

Happiness - what is happiness to you? What really makes you happy in your everyday life? We have good and bad days of course; what is something that makes you smile? For me, it’s the little things in life, simplicity. The aroma of melted candle wax and rained kissed soil. Freshly brewed coffee poured into a quirky mug. Surreal paintings warming a frangible historic building. No matter how chaotic life gets, happiness is a priority for our mental health. Be good to yourself 🖤
