Friday faves

Erin Condren planner. I can’t believe I haven’t written about this yet! I’m in love with this planner. Not only does it separate each day into morning and afternoon, but it also has pockets, custom stickers and birthday/anniversaries. I also love the inspirational quotes scattered throughout the book.

A photography lesson. I was able to get some tips from the fabulous Jacquelynn Buck (she took our family Christmas photos!). It’s amazing that erm, after 4 years after owning a DSLR, I finally know what it’s capable of doing. I’m excited to practice and get the hang of everything she taught me! Hopefully you’ll be able to see a difference in my photos eventually ๐Ÿ˜‰ I just checked my email, and she kindly offered to guest post with some photography tips! If you have any questions for her, shout them out in the comments ๐Ÿ™‚

After the lesson, I stopped by a local nursery to check out the succulent collection. It makes sense to get a new plant the day before movers come to pack up your house.

    Recently started reading your blog a few weeks ago, so here’s a collection of comments I would have made, but didn’t have time–usually I don’t comment on blogs.

    I have only moved a few times in my life, but ever time has been emotional. I admire our military friends because they never seem to have all the clutter we do after having lived in our house 14 years. I also admire that they get to have so many “adventures” in different places!

    We have a cavalier as well, with the same coloring as yours, named Cosmo. We LOVE him! We also have a second one that is black with tan markings. They are such sweet, affectionate dogs and great with our kids. I am tempted to add a white/black one, but two dogs are probably plenty.

    We just got Frost where we live. Mmmmm…. My brother and his family live in Tucson (and have always raved about Frost), so it’s been fun to see places I recognize in Tucson.

    Take care, and have fun this summer in San Diego!

      thank you so much for reading (and for commenting) ๐Ÿ™‚
      moving is definitely emotional, but it is nice to streamline and get rid of clutter every couple of years. it’s also fun to see new places ๐Ÿ™‚
      that’s cute that we have almost cavalier twins!
      LOVE frost ๐Ÿ™‚
      hope you have a great weekend!

    What I’m up to this weekend: getting to know my new baby boy!!! ๐Ÿ™‚ He was born on Wednesday but has been in the NICU until this afternoon. He’s finally home and we’re loving every crazy second of it.

    Can’t wait to read about those photography tips. I just got a DSLR for Christmas and I would love some tips on how to capture every amazing moment of our little guy’s life.

    Good luck with the move!

    Thanks for including the link to the article about Life Lessons to Excel at in Your 30s. That was an inspiring read. I’m in my early 30s and it’s a great reminder of what’s really important in life. This is one of the many reasons I love your blog – you are positive and inspiring and I love that you promote other positive, inspiring content as well.
