The number one spot on my “Good Things” list goes to the recent social media and blog break I took toward the end of the year. Online had become a not-so-fun place to be and as I ease back into Instagram, in particular, I’m reminding myself that if it’s not making my days happier, it’s okay to take breaks as needed. I used the time away to tinker with my own house without documenting it, to rearrange some furniture just for the fun of change, to study pictures of rooms that I love (like this one by Gordon Dunning), and to remember why I like doing this in the first place.
Here are a few of the other good things I discovered in January:
I just added these cute hand towels to the girls’ bathroom.
I’ve now ordered three different sets of these lightweight frames in an effort to complete a new gallery wall upstairs.
And speaking of comfortable pants, I bought these in two colors.
These delicate earrings are in my current rotation.
Why haven’t I bought a set of these magnetic measuring spoons before now?
I also added another (badly needed) nonstick skillet to my kitchen.
Love the idea of these durable leather cube ottomans.
I recently watched all five seasons of Greenleaf on Netflix like it was my job. Have you watched this? I’ve also been listening to the soundtracks on Apple Music.
