It’s 2019! It’s a weird sci-fi thing to say and very wild to think we’ll be in the year 2020 next year. Very Zenon (I hope ‘Supernova Girl is stuck in your head for the rest of the day). I love reflecting on my best purchases of the year to see which items made the biggest impact across the board. From the quick, impulsive AmazonPrime purchases to the items that I spent years considering, comparing and hoping for–here are my best purchases of the year.

It’s time for my last gift guide of the year- stocking stuffers! I love a stocking, guys. It’s the first thing we open every Christmas morning and O and I still like to make them special for each other! I usually get the kids very little things like a deck of cards or beads or things like that, but I do try to make O’s stocking a balance of things he needs but would never think of, wants but would never buy and something just to make him smile.
If I could do it all over again, (cue “If I could tuuuurn back time…”) I think I’d go back to school to study Interior Design. It’s been a passion of mine since I can remember and would really come in handy these days as O and I renovate homes together. Since there are no do overs, I rely heavily on learning through the design teams I admire and Instagram is my favorite place to do just that. Here are the accounts that make the most appearances in my Saved Folder:
A question I receive often is what cameras I use and why. I have been passionate about photography since I can remember, anxiously awaiting my Kodak disposable film to be developed after an elementary school birthday party, making all my siblings line up for photos on vacations and taking selfies well before there was a term. I am certainly no professional but you will rarely find me without a camera on hand. Grab a cup of coffee or tea and save this post for when you have a bit of free time to relax. This post has no shortage of words plus lots (and lots) of photos!
Hello Friends! Happy Friday! Here are some things that caught my eye this week:
