I decided to start a new Friday blog series – “What I’m Loving This Week”!
With my blog I want to begin opening up more conversational and casual posts that allow more interaction between us. Sometimes I feel trapped in what I can & can’t post here because I put the pressure on myself to make long, detailed blog posts constantly. There are so many instances in which I want to talk about something small like a new favorite song or a news article I read about & I didn’t know where to post about it! Then I remembered I have a blog for this very reason.
So that being said.. here’s what I’m loving this week!
A Work of Art
Found this wreath at Terrain and I love it. Not quite sure where I want to place it yet but I know I’ll find a spot soon . It looks like a work of art! Pricy but sometimes I’ll splurge on a piece that is unique. Click here to shop the wreath.
Many of you know that Jeff travels often for work. He works in the cyber security field and that takes him out of the country a lot. While I try to travel with him as much as I can, this time around I couldn’t make it work. I’m so happy because today he’s getting home from Ireland and we have a lazy weekend with nothing planned ahead of us. Hopefully Jeff will fire up the BBQ & make something yummy that I can share.
Fire Pit Love
The new glow in the backyard from our fire pit. Now that the backyard is finished we’re able to enjoy all the little things.. this fire pit from Frontgate being one of them. Even though it’s warm outside, we light it just about every night because I’m obsessed with the ambiance. The fire glass is from Frontgate as well. Click here to shop our fire pit.
New Reading Plan

Yesterday I went to Barnes & Noble for the first time in awhile. I’ve been feeling like I’ve been getting too much screen time lately and I’m craving the peace & quiet of reading. I used to read 1-2 books per week at least and I’ve fallen out of the habit. My new goal is to read at least 1 book per month if not more for the rest of 2019. What are you guys reading right now? Please share your favorites below.. I need some suggestions!

I’m always a sucker for feel-good stories and this grabbed my attention this week. A sweet carpenter in Des Moines saved up more than 3 million dollars throughout his life and wanted to do something special with it. He never was never able to attend college due to his financial situation. With the money he saved, he set up a foundation which provided 33 kids full-ride scholarships so that they would have the chance to better their life. The story made me feel so happy this week – click here to read it in full.
