Blogtember | Day Fifteen: Moody

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6
Today's blogtember prompt is a fun one! We were asked to create a mood board.  I'm always dreaming of a home redo, so I decided to make my mood board based on some ideas for my dream home.  I'm not really sure if this is a mood board or just a collage of home things I love, but here it is.  I would love to do pretty much any room in my home and am very very slowly working on it.  Some of my favorite design elements are midcentury furniture, built in shelves, lots of white with pops of color, gallery walls, and polka dots in unexpected places.  I would love to have cognac leather furniture and a neutral bedroom with cozy textiles and white kitchen cabinets! Oh how I dream of having white cabinets.  Here's a collage of some of my favorite looks on Pinterest.

Blogtember | Day Twelve: Tradition Tradition!

Most of my family traditions center around Christmas.  Growing up we got pajamas and a special present on Christmas Eve.  My present was a snow globe.  I want to continue that tradition with my own family, except for a special present I want to give a book with our Christmas Eve pajamas.

I spent my elementary school years in Kodiak, Alaska.  My mom kept my sister and I home from school the first big snow every year. This meant we had the sledding hill all to ourselves and were able to be the first ones to leave footprints in the snowy field behind our house.

Blogtember | Day Eleven: Inspire Me

1, 23, 4
Today's blogtember prompt is "how do you stay inspired?"  Looking through apps like Pinterest and Instagram definitely gives me a little inspiration when it comes to projects I want to do or food I want to make.  My favorite thing to browse on Pinterest is home inspiration.  I dream about what my home will (hopefully) some day look like.  I also love getting outfit and DIY inspiration.

Most of my inspiration for my day to day life comes from attending church on Sundays.  Even more so when I am teaching the lesson and take the time to prepare it.  Each week I leave with a renewed perspective and desire to live a little better.

I also get a lot of inspiration with lists! I love writing to do lists, goal lists, and project lists.  I think these lists help me to come up with more ideas and take action to accomplish them.  There's something about them written down that makes me want to get to work.
