Last night, I drank a cup of tea out of the "simplify" mug seen above. I found it in the back of our cabinet, not really sure where it came from or who might've left it at our house, but I loved finding it. I've been thinking about simplifying a lot lately. Sometimes I feel really torn about all of my goals and to-do's and I just want to live simply. I'm not exactly sure what is "simple" for me, but I would really like to find out.
I think one way I'd like to simplify is to go back to my "roots" in regards to this blog. For instance, I used to do this little thing called iPhone Photo Dump every Friday. I shared all of my Instagram photos from that week and gave a little recap of our week. I don't really know why I stopped, but I've really missed those posts lately. So, here's to their come back! And if you're not already following me on IG, you can do so here.

Over the past two weeks we have been redoing Gunner's playroom. A month or so ago I painted it a bright aqua but was never really a fan, so I decided to go for a grey. Unfortunately, during our painting process, the first two gallons were mixed wrong so we had to go back for two gallons that were the right color. I love the grey color that we eventually ended up with.

I've also been finding lots of joy in vintage and thrifted finds lately. All of my finds have been purchased through the IG shops I listed above, I rarely seem to find pieces in thrift stores on my own, but I'm definitely wanting to step out and try a little more. Couple that with the fact that Gunner will actually tolerate sitting in a shopping cart now, I see some thrift store adventures on our hands.
This weekend we have plans for family time and more work on Gunner's playroom.
Do you have anything exciting planned? xo
