good morning lovelies. my level of exhaustion is pretty intense today. spent the whole weekend painting our living room. the good news is that is looks fantastic and the bad news is i’m now ready for my weekend. more pictures and tales to come later. but for now, zooey deschanel say’s it best. have a lovely day! xo
this morning, with him, having coffee
[b] and i share a love for coffee. weekend mornings we can most likely be found at a caribou sipping on the seasonal favorite and taking #bouface selfies. there’s something about a coffee shop that’s just cozy. even if we’re both on our laptops or phones crushing candies while we’re there hanging out it’s some of my favorite times. something we like to do together.
at the old house this enjoyable activity was limited to weekends only. [b] or i would sometimes make coffee durning the week but we had to the leave house so early because of crappy commutes that it was almost always taken to-go. one of the many things i love about our new house is that we both have a short commute. there are oodles of good things that come from this; we’re not as rushed in the morning to try and “beat” traffic (which never worked – 494 is the worst), we’re not stuck in hours of traffic on the way home which just makes you uber cranky by the time you get home. it’s glorious and makes you realize how much a shitty commute can really affect your attitude.
but [probably] my most favorite thing that has come from this is that we get to spend time together in the morning. we’ve eaten breakfast together more in the past 2 months than we ever did in a year and a half at the old house. and almost every morning we have coffee. [b] gets up with the chickens at unforsaken times like 4 in the morning so he’s usually/always the one to make the coffee. sometimes we enjoy our coffee seperately while we’re getting ready. but some days, like this morning, we get to sit together [with #starksthepup] and watch tv and look at save the dates on pinterest and enjoy our coffee together before we started our day. nothing else mattered, no anxiety, no worry, no stress, just us. and those moments, with him, having coffee that make me feel so blessed to get to do life with that guy.

my favorite tee right now from the home t
happy gloomy monday, friends. i hope you all had a wonderful weekend. it was simply gorgeous here in minnesota. i had a very “grown up” weekend with meeting with potential wedding photographer, looking at houses, and getting our house ready to be put on the market this week. (eeeekkk). lots of things happening. big things. but great things.
in addition to the fun things going on, we got starksthepup to sing for us. gotta practice for the wedding :) we also finished House of Cards season 2 this weekend. SO GOOD. it’s like pringles though so once you start you better get comfortable. cannot believe they haven’t started filming season 3 yet.
