I'm not sure what's keeping me from blogging these days. I've got plenty of things that I think about sharing. But then I don't. I'm just kind of hanging out in the little moments lately and that feels just right. From my perch right now I can see my beautiful blooming crabapple tree and smell fresh lilacs all around me. It's good stuff. I thought today I'd take some time to show you what I've been doing. I hope you can take the excitement.
This week I found a new Spring edition of Country Home magazine. I did a quick flip through it and it looks good but I've tucked it away for an upcoming road trip so I can savor it. Unless I find myself unable to resist the call of this favorite spot.
With the fresh breezes blowing, I'm getting my clean on and I'm all over anything citrus scented right now. I'm loving Mrs Meyers Lemon products, Method Mandarin dish soap, and from Bath and Body Works Fresh Lemon hand soap and Brilliant Citrus wallflowers. Next thing you know I'll be seeing if I can source some lime laundry detergent.
Aside from cleaning, I'm also in organizing mode. Emma grew 4 inches this past year and inventory had to be performed in her closet. Sadly a lot of things didn't make the cut.
For me Spring conjures up images of linen. I'm from the South so it can't be helped. If not for linen, then my husband might not be my husband. True story. This week I've found myself buying linen pants, shorts and shoes. I must be stopped. Maybe stumbling upon a stash of seersucker will put an end to it.
Lately I've been trying to stay out of the craft stores. I need all of my extra money for citrus scented products, linen clothing and gas for upcoming road trips but I did make an exception at Michaels to buy some Martha Stewart craft paint. Even if I did nothing with it but leave it out looking pretty, it was worth the money.
In other news, I did Pilates for the first time today. I think I did it wrong because my back hurts. Well, that pretty well updates you on the exciting happenings in my life. If you are still awake you can tell me what's new with you.
