Here’s what is generally happening with me lately. Life is really good. The weather is excellent and it’s prime going-on-walks-season where I live.
And, being a mom is the BEST. Everyday I am grateful I get to watch my son grow up. The next decade is going to be one of my favorites of my life, I can tell. Work is also good—there’s just a LOT going on.
And the last couple of weeks I’ve had knots in my stomach, and the only thing I can really figure out is it might be stress/anxiety related.
So, I’m living this weird duality where I am truly so happy and grateful, AND at the same time I’m a little worried all the stress (of the last however long) is catching up with me.
Life is messy. Mint tea and stretching kind of helps. Here are 10 things I’ve been loving lately …
-I recently bought this cheese knife set—it’s so cute! We’ve already used them a ton. The tiny axe is my favorite.
-Excited to read this nonfiction book. The title really speaks to me.
-I bought Oscar a new swimsuit since he already grew out of his one from last summer. I cannot wait for him to wear it, even if we only stay at the pool for 30 minutes. It’s just SO cute and hilarious.
-Anytime I’m watching TV on my own, I’m binging season two of The Home Edit. So far, I have teared up every episode.
I don’t know why, but it just gets to me every time they react to the organized space. And then I’m walking around my house trying to find things to organize.
-I wear sunscreen all year, but here’s your pre-summer reminder from your weird Aunt Emma that you gotta wear sunscreen every day. So make sure to stock up for this coming season.
-Some months ago, I got this square phone case (from an Instagram ad … I’m a sucker) and I’ve never gotten so many curious questions and compliments about a phone case before.
-I have too many gold necklaces already, but I still have this one in my cart (and it’s on sale).
-Last year, I pared down my cookbook collection (as it had gotten out of hand) and they mostly went to friends. Now I see them in their homes, and I sort of love it.
That being said, I really want to buy this cookbook. The hoarding begins again, I guess.
-I have some high-waisted black swimsuit bottoms that I love, but the top I wear with it is sort of annoying (the straps fall down a lot).
Thinking about buying this one to go with the bottoms, even though they don’t match. I think it’s cute, but I also feel like my son won’t be able to pull it off so easily. Lol.
Take care of yourself this weekend! Sending love your way. xo. Emma
