Weekly Update – Bringing Spring Indoors!

Mar 16, 2017 | Life in Progress

I’m obsessed with Instagram – it’s my favorite online home! Here’s a recap from the last week, and for those of you who aren’t on Instagram, come and join me!

Saturday, March 11

You guys. Remember when I fell in love with these chairs? I brought them home and they clashed with wall paint color as well as a couple of other hutches we had in this room. Many weeks later and much painting later (of walls and hutches and a few other things) we are settled. This room has always been the trickiest for me to decorate. I am finally love love love it!

And because I’m a before and after nerd, here’s a before and after shot.

It’s been a hard winter for me. The rain and cloudy skies without the sun have been especially brutal this year in the Pacific Northwest. There have been moments when the sun comes out for a brief period and I actually tear up when it tucks itself back in the clouds (Not. Even. Kidding.). Yesterday I bought a ton of Spring flowers and spread them all over the house. And then today I saw these at the store. My favorite. A reminder that sunny days are coming. And when they do, I will cherish all the moments. All of them.

Hiking in the Columbia River Gorge with these three is one of my favorite things we do together. Green for days.

Woke up feeling a bit stressed about some work stuff. It’s hard sometimes, as is anything worth doing. And it will all work out. But flowers. Yes. I’ll take the beauty in the hard.

Freshman year of college. A gratitude list for my homesick self. I had tons of these lists. Taped to my mirror. In my journals. In my class notebooks. They were my lifeline as I felt lost and new and wobbly. I love that I saved this stuff. Reminds me that in so many ways I’ve always been who I am.

Bringing Spring indoors as we all wait patiently for it to arrive outdoors. Also, feeling mighty grateful for my online community today. Thank you for being here;)

Coming up on 18 years since I asked him out on our first date. We have been through so much. So much. I am feel how our unending investment in one another and our relationship is paying off, especially lately as we savor the ease of our life together.


Sending much love,

    I have also struggled with all.the.rain this winter. I’m in California and know we need the rain, but wow! Hard winter. Does using the “sun” light help? I’ve wondered if I should get one. I really appreciate when you share that you struggle with life sometimes. It is part of being human, yet it’s so easy to look at other people’s lives on line and only see perfection. So easy to compare and come up feeling lacking or not enough. Thank you for sharing your journey. It helps me with mine.
