I am currently typing this sitting on the floor surrounded by boxes — moving day is here! We sold our house and it closes in a couple days, so we took advantage of the overlap with our new place and started moving in early! I have been pretty quiet around here about plans and I promise to share as soon as I can! Things have been rolling, however slowly, but they are moving in the right direction, so that is exciting!
So let’s get right down to it! You saw on Instagram that we went skiing for my birthday. Had a lot of questions about my ski pants! You cannot beat this price ($30??), and while they didn’t stay perfectly dry (but let it be known I spent a lot of time on my butt thinking I could hit jumps like I used to) I was super happy with them.
Next I picked up this sunglasses case and love it! I had all my sunglasses rolling around in my car and getting ruined and feel much better about this system. // I have employed the rule that if I want something new I have to sell or donate something first. I have enough stuff, you know? Trying to figure out which pair of bootiesI can part with to make room for these. Such a great Spring addition!!
We have a trip to San Diego coming up in a couple weeks and I am praying for some high temps. I love the look of One Teaspoon shorts and bought these with good faith, don’t let me down SD!
READING: Since my last Fryday — A Man Called Ove (so sweet and charming and reminded me of my husband and his brother) and also Where’d You Go Bernadette? I know it’s old news, but I love love LOVED it. I also read Daring Greatly which I talked about in my end of year wrap-up, but it changed my life. You can read why here.
WATCHING: We watched a ton while we packed, dejunked and rested from packing this past month. The OA. Just so weird, but I ended up weeping, re-watching, and weeping again at the end. I don’t even recommend it because its that weird, but the pay out at the end was really beautiful. Also Black Mirror if you want to turn your world upside down and make you want to destroy all technology.
LISTENING: Lately – Bahamas (listen to Waves to start), Hamilton Leithauser (1959), Wild Belle (Love Like This). And when I work out, Salute by Little Mix. I am certain if the women’s march would’ve had a choreographed flash mob to this it would’ve blown the roof off. 😉
DECORATING: Oh heavens, anytime you move to a new space it’s like nothing fits or works how it did in your old place. I am sure I’ll have lots to share as we get more settled. For now, new dining chairs, a perfect bench for getting shoes on, more light for dark nooks and those pillows I WON’T STOP RAVING ABOUT!
FEELING: My mom is into numerology and said 2016 was all about endings, big ones. Painful and exciting. Closing chapters, burning bridges. 2017 is about new beginnings and chances and opportunities. I think from what I hear from my friends online and off, that has been wildly true in huge and small ways for most of us. On the very last day of the 2016 we sold our house. The very first day of 2017 we put an offer on a lot. So far numerology is onto something! Happy 2017, may the bridges we’ve burned light the way!
