This was the longest election “night” of my life, literally. I knew it was going to be a hard week, but the stress of waiting this out really took a toll on me. Anyone else?
Every morning, I’d wake up and immediately look at my phone to see if there was an update. And every morning, still this:
Why would we excpect anything different from 2020 though, right?
Survival was the name of the game this week and it took a lot of coping strategies to make it through. Here’s what self-care looked like this week:
Nothing fun though, just necessity shopping to keep me out of the stores because our COVID numbers in Iowa are SHOCKING right now, adding one more layer of stress. 😩
Nature always has a way of making me feel better.
Beautiful fall weather…
The weather was so gorgeous, that I decided to take advantage of it and move this DIY project up on my to-do list. I had thought I’d have to wait until spring to give it a makeover, but these recent warm days inspired me to work on it while I enjoyed sunshine and stress-relief. Can’t wait to show you the finished product!
The Weekly Features!
This week’s feature selections encompass three of my favorite things– furniture makeovers, antiques, and travel!
Painting a Headboard | Wise Little Owl Furniture
My love of furniture DIYs made this post by Wise Little Owl jump out, especially because I have a very similar headboard waiting to be painted! This one turned out lovely!
Antique Rocking Horse | Common Ground
This antique rocking horse stole my heart. I’d love to have something similar! What a find.
RV Roadtrip | Life of 2 Snowbirds
I’m missing travel so much right now. Reading the adventures of these two snowbirds makes me ready to move retirement up on my “to-do list” as well! 😂
Thanks so much for always linking up with such great posts, you guys! Can’t wait to see what you’ve been up to this week. 💙
