Wanderlust Wednesday

Wanderlust

Having an impulse to wander and explore the world.

A strong desire to travel.

Wednesday, affectionately known as "hump day" has sort of a negative meaning in my mind.

I don't know about you, but I don't want to have a negative thought today. I choose happy, smiling, laughing almost anytime over having a negative thought in my day. Sure- being in a normal, everyday state of mind can bring on thoughts of gratefulness, thoughtfulness, nostalgia, or just plowing through your workday.

But today- on Wednesday- I'm choosing to take my mind elsewhere. To a place I've never been. And dream of being there. Just for a few minutes to escape the people around me at the coffee shop, the sound of type pads clicking, and people chatting, and head to a gorgeous island within seconds.

It's a beautiful place. Come with me..

Winter to Spring

I don't know about you, but I've been pretending it's spring for a couple of weeks now. 

Getting fresh tulips for the house, not wearing a heavy coat when going outside... 

(probably not the best idea)

and my overall mindset is shifting OFF of winter and ON to SPRING!

    This bathroom could go totally wintery or completely spring with just a few accessories.

While some people may dread living in a place where winter consumes most months of the year, we simply love the change in seasons. Fall and winter call for faux fur, plaid, and leather, while spring and summer scream for a more airy, bright and happy feel.

A few easy ways to transition from winter to spring is to add bright colored pillows, a light color or striped throw over a chair, and adding some fresh flowers or greenery on the dining table. Even splitting up a bouquet of flowers to spread in different size vases through the house add a touch of happy in every room! 

I wouldn't mind have some bright green drapes all year round like the first photo, though ;)

 Have an awesome week!
