Random thoughts on a brilliantly sunny grass-smelling Saturday morning:
1. When did Winnie The Pooh become a brilliant philosopher? Seriously. Every time I get on Instagram there’s a quote from Winnie that makes me reevaluate my life and count my blessings and want to be a better person.
Like this one.
“I always get to where I’m going by walking away from where I’ve been.”
You go Winnie.
2. Currently right now there are two men in my back yard with a load of nonsense about to go to the dump. Nothing makes my heart beat faster.
3. Have you ever tried Pellegrino? I just discovered it and I LOVE IT. What are your thoughts on sparkling water?
4. This was an amazing week on the blog. We answered barn door questions and discussed 50 simple 20-minute decorating ideas and learned the best tips for spray painting and shared the cutest rug and blue and white decor from WalMart.
5. Today we are having a three-generational outing. My mother and my sister and the twins and I are all heading into Dallas for the Etsy show. My sister, Whitney, has a booth there and the rest of us?
6. Just when the day couldn’t get any brighter. Whitney came downstairs and told me she’s been reading the blog for twenty minutes. A teenager? Interested in her mom’s work? Life is so bright I need to wear shades.
We never pass up shopping.

One more for the road.
