Happy long weekend, folks. Not sure why but this week seemed extra long and emotional (yesterday’s comment war didn’t help the situation). So I’m calling it early and spending the rest of today and this weekend with my kiddos who make me feel good all the time, no matter what. Well, not when they are tantruming but when they are asleep and I’m emotional they are somehow PERFECT 🙂
A quick update re that comment thread. This blog is about design and life, in the most honest and transparent way that I feel comfortable. I document the fun and ugly process of making a room look beautiful, not just the result. I absolutely appreciate all the comments, negative or positive but you should know that negative comments can affect the psyche in a more compound, latent way that will affect future content. The danger of internet trolls is that it can make us become generic for fear of showing our true selves. Being vulnerable becomes a nauseating risk and showing our inadequacies becomes a threat to our daily happiness. But don’t worry. Not me. I won’t let negativity dictate the content, change my personality or my motto here of writing the blog that I want to read and neither should y’all. As I tell my toddlers, ‘think about others before you say something, especially something mean. Be nice to everyone – even those being mean because they are the ones that need niceness the most. And in this world of bullying, led by our president, always, ALWAYS stand up to the mean guy’. Thank you so much to all of you who did this and reduced my nausea, and supported me and my process. It can certainly be ugly, and it ain’t perfect but in a world of Pinterest perfection I hope that it empowers your decisions and enlivens your confidence when it comes to designing your home.
So I figured I’d round up a bunch of pretty things on sale, both for your body and homes. For good or more likely bad, shopping makes me feel happy so I dove deep and found a bunch of nice looking things that I’m tempted by. It’s shallow, but I wanted some sort of content for this day besides my ‘thanks for being nice’ post.
Here you go. If you are in the shopping mood, great, if not then just step away and have a lovely weekend away from the internet, with the ones that you love. xx
