Spring (Nesting), A Relaxing Playlist, & Matthew McConaughey

From Our Weekly Newsletter (subscribe here!)

Spring... nesting?! Is this a thing? Suddenly I am energized and filled with ideas of projects and things I'd like to do in our home. Remember the built-in bench idea? Still fantasizing about that, along with a fireplace re-do, paint, wainscoting and wallpaper. (I hope Tim doesn't subscribe to this newsletter) :)

I bought myself flowers today and it reminded me of a conversation with a friend a while ago. Buying flowers for myself instantly boosts my mood, and buying friends flowers is also fun too! Here's why you should buy yourself flowers too!

With the home project ideas, also comes browsing for art. A few I like 1 2 3 ... Do you have a style? I find myself shifting throughout the years, but coming back to a more eclectic, casual style. I love color, and am missing it in my home. I'm looking for some art that will bring some fun & light into our home (hence the paint needed too :). Another idea I LOVE - framing our kids art!

I listened to this podcast: 6 Truths To Get What You Want In Life with Matthew McConaughey. I have always loved Matthew McConaughey for all the rom-coms he starred in throughout my formative years, and then for his courage to shift his acting career. If you haven't already, I highly recommend listening to his audiobook Greenlights, - he narrates it himself! Not only is it hilariously entertaining, but incredibly inspiring.   
Here's a playlist of relaxing songs from the same article mentioned above about the song that is said to reduce stress up to 65%. Enjoy (and relax). :)
Have a great weekend!
