Forever In Search of a Work|Life Balance.
Sound familiar? If there’s a trend that I’ve noticed from most of our friends and family, it’s that we’re all in search of balance. Such a simple word, yet it holds so much power. Many of us are Zoom-ing (both for work and school), full-time parenting, full-time working, full-time worrying, full-time grasping at any semblance of sanity that 2020 might be kind enough to throw our way.
In the past week, Scott and I have delved deep into discussing everything from selling the Two Flat, selling the Two Flat and the condo, selling the Two Flat, the condo and the Tree House – and just, I don’t know, simplifying. And yet, every other day, I ask Scott, Should we move into the Two Flat? There have been moments where thinking about the Two Flat gave me anxiety, and yet there have been times where I couldn’t imagine parting with her. I love her, I loathe her. I think she’s gorgeous, I think she’ll never be finished.
This week, we said: Enough! In our own effort of finding a work/life balance, we decided to simply choose it. Growing up, if my grandpa had an epiphany, he would say, How about that! So for the next several days, we’re choosing not to glorify ‘busy-ness.’ There will always be time to be busy, just not today. Now, how about that?
Have you tried Boll & Branch sheets? In keeping with our tone-on-tone theme, we scooped up this sheet set in Mineral. They’re crisp and cool, but perhaps my favorite part – they come out of the dryer virtually wrinkle-free!
Lucy is at the age where we no longer need a full-on diaper bag, so I swapped to a simple drawstring backpack! I keep a couple diapers, wipes, wallet, keys and book for the Goose, with room to spare. Mine is red, but this color is gorgeous and on sale.
Studio McGee’s newest collection with Target launched this week! Here are some of my favorite finds:
Are you getting married this year? If so, how are you? I know it can’t be easy, but this sweet story made my heart smile.

I was recently tagged in a video of Esme @fromyerdad, and then I promptly spent the next half hour going back to the beginning. I laughed and I cried, I smiled so hard that my cheeks hurt. I dare you to give this account a follow, start from square one, and not fall head over heels for Esme (and her dad!).

We’re looking forward to taking Kitty-Catfish to the sand dunes for the first time, eating our weight in Red Coach Donuts and soaking up the cooler weather on the way. What are you up to?
