ONE First and foremost, thank you so much for all the kind words about the launch of Rowan Made on Monday. I am absolutely floored + thankful for each and every one of you. On Sunday afternoon, I shot a few prep photos and so this is just a behind the scenes shot taken right in our dining room.
TWO I’ve gotta say : this extra daylight we’ve been given is absolutely amazing. I love the soft light that pours into our kitchen at dinner time. No complaints here! It just means that we are that much closer to feeling warm weather again up here. We got a little tease of that last week when it reached 53 degrees, but back to winter this week it is. Bummer.
THREE I got strep throat last week and instantly went into recovery mode. Being that we leave for vacation on Friday, I knew I wanted to kick this thing in the butt as quick as possible. I drank a bunch of home remedies, took a hot bath, and am happy to report that I’m almost feeling 100% again. Phew. Strep has plagued me four other times during the past two years, which I took antibiotics for. This time around, though, I decided that perhaps my body was using that as a crutch and thought I’d try kicking it out myself. Seems to have done the trick! Hopefully for a long time.
FOUR Last weekend, Gap had a 40% off sale on everything ( SCORE ), so I snagged a few basics just in time for our trip down south! My closet, after all, is a bit sparse when it comes to spring attire since we haven’t seen warm weather for awhile here. I picked out this white pocket tee, a sleeveless chambray tunic ( obsessed ), and a pair of nude sandals. I can’t wait to go somewhere I don’t have to wear a jacket. What is that like again? I don’t know. Two days.
FIVE Awhile back, I went on this random spree of signing up for printed catalogues from brands I love. I totally forgot about this until they started showing up in our mailbox this month! It’s always a good idea to step away from the computer and find inspiration elsewhere, so I have a feeling many of these pages will be torn up and put on my inspiration wall. I plan on getting started on that real soon, since my office has been the last thing we put together since moving!
SIX Because I was sick last week, I ate pretty healthy during the entire week, which if you know me – is a pretty difficult task to complete. I drank 64+ ounces of water each day and even made home cooked meals most evenings. ( Can this always happen?? ) But then this past weekend came around and I crossed paths with a donut. Or two. Since I was feeling better, I indulged a little bit and enjoyed every single second of it. I’m on the donut bandwagon for life and am not sorry about it. ;)
