Happy Friday, my friends! I am really looking forward to this weekend and getting to head to the beach for a little R & R with Angela & Glory! David and I are both on new professional journeys and we are really excited about all that comes with that type of change. Today, I’m excited to share my August edition of coffee talk!
I have been working on purging and minimizing clutter and “things” in my space. I have been really intentional about bringing items in my space that bring me joy and happiness, and not things that create anxiety or frustration. It has really been helpful for me and I have enjoyed the act of simplifying. Here is a recent article I read about the clutter-depression-anxiety cycle and the part about organizing not being simplifying really spoke to me.
After a couple of month’s break, I joined Pure Barre again. I had been doing ClassPass, and was enjoying that, but I definitely struggled with the lack of consistency. In my brief time back, I am already so thrilled.
With the trip that David and I are planning, I can’t help but reflect on the first times I traveled to some of my favorite cities. I did not travel a ton growing up, so my first tastes of traveling were to Charleston, D.C., and New York City. I have loved visiting those cities as an adult, and I am looking forward to more trips in the future. Check out some of my favorite Charleston posts (here, here, and here) and D.C. (here, here, and here).
I have loved history for as long as I can remember, and I have really been loving the Twitterstorian movement! My personal favorite is Kevin Kruse over @kevinmkruse. I read his threads every morning when I wake up. Check him out if you’re looking for someone to relate current debates to historical ones.
My friend Hannah sent me this lip color (in Mehr) a couple of months ago, and I am obsessed with it!
This print really spoke to me, and I added it to our master bedroom decor. I really am looking forward to sharing a home tour with y’all in the future.
