Hey, pals! Can you believe that we're halfway through 2016 already?! I really can't. You know that saying, "The days are long but the years are short"? Well, I feel like lately the days are just as short. To quote Jessie Spano, "There's never enough time!" I was telling Zach the other day that I really want to get better at shutting off and enjoying time more instead of always feeling like I need to be productive. Like I feel SUPER guilty when I have a non-productive day, when really I just need them sometimes to rest and recharge- it's human. So I'm trying to focus on that a little bit more, to stop chasing time and just try to focus on moments. Especially with upcoming family gatherings, I really want to be able to JUST BE.
Are you feeling the need to take a mental break from the hamster wheel of life, too? Good because I've got a lot of distractions for you today. Take a little time and JUST BE with these little gems.
3 S'mores are always cool, but these s'mores, with tie dye Fourth of July marshamallows, are BEAUTIFUL! (Studio DIY) | 4 I think this DIY Matisse-inspired rug might be one of the most impressive projects I've ever seen. It's perfect for large-scale or hard-to-fit rooms. (The House that Lars Built)
5 I liked this original blog post a few years back, but Tim Urban's presentation makes it even better. So funny and so, so relatable.
Want a few more...?
I saw so many great party ideas this week. This hip-hop birthday is my new personal life goal.
Plus, THE MOST adorable party for an equally adorable two-year-old.
And the most brilliant idea ever: the pity party.
A coffee table book about butts.
I love these short + sophisticated names for a baby girl.
Loving Lucy Hale's new 'do (and that lipstick).
Oh Joy!'s Summer Target collection is so good.
And have you seen @fashiondads? Because it's a national treasure.
