Life has been (or at least felt) very full lately.
I think I go in cycles. Sometimes feeling like I have everything more or less under control and I’m making good progress on my goals.
And then other times I find myself overwhelmed and sitting on the couch, looking at unfolded laundry and our Cheerio-garnished floors, wondering how other people with more than one kid and/or kids + careers make it all look so easy.
This has been one of those other times.
Javi turned 9 months old and has recently discovered his love of standing (with assistance). He just figured out crawling and as much as I love watching him gain new skills and independence, I’m not ready for walking(!).
All that said, I’m still pushing through with Apartment Therapy’s Style Cure! It started last week and so far the assignments have challenged me to define my style preferences.
Things that have stood out for me:
I LOVE light…
I feel sad in unintentionally dark or dim rooms – especially during the day. All of my favorite places & memories involve an abundance of sunlight.
I like white walls & clean lined furniture – Especially Mid-Century modern pieces.

And I’ve rarely met a colorful boho accent or cozy textile that I didn’t want to bring home. (The more throw blankets, the better).
I like abstract paintings and simple nature photography.
And I think every space feels better with plants.

I’m looking forward to what the next assignments will bring!
