Hello beautiful!

I’ll bring you back to grade school today. I have an obsession with stationary, anything glittery full of color, whimsical, bright, and girly I should be embarrassed for someone my age. But as mentioned before, age is an attitude!. Growing up I had drawers and buckets full of Lisa Frank and hello kitty and I still can’t break away from that little kitty. I only have hints of it here and there, I have toned it down since I got married. I know you’ve seen this chevron mosaic all around from home decor to the office. Yes it’s a bit trendy but super adorable.  I went to a boutique in Santa Barbara and completely fell in love with this notebook perfect to tote around only I wasn’t going to pay what they were asking for it. I ended up going to paper source another playground for me. I bought this pretty paper and voilĂ ! Take a peek!

As of today my husband and I will be moving into our new home. After searching an entire year we finally found what we were looking for. We went from renting a 3000 square foot home four years of our marriage to renting a one bedroom apartment this last year. For one I am really glad that we rented a house before we purchased one because it gave us the opportunity to experience what we did not want from a house. The house we were in before was too big, and consumed a lot of our time maintaining it, and we decided we did not want to live our lives like that, and a one bedroom apartment was extremely small, however we managed.

We settled for a contemporary 1700 square foot house by the lake and these are a few things I am looking forward to sharing with you.

My passion for baking.

Getting the courage to dive into DIY projects.


And photos by the lake.

You can only wonder what I have ahead of me this weekend. Whatever you are doing this weekend I hope it includes doing less work then I will be doing.

Until next time,
Monica
