Friday Little Love Moments : 2/24

It’s late but I am still within the time for another Friday Little Love Moments! I missed last week and didn’t realize until two days later. I felt very sick that night and headed to bed without thinking of what I still had left to do. I am sick with a cold that everyone here seems to have but I didn’t want to miss another posting. My week has been calm for the most part. We all seem to be under the weather so it’s been semi low key. I almost have the new painted bedroom all in order. I should have it all done by tomorrow with the rearragment. My pillows & duvet cover came from H&M and I am so thankful for that because my bed is so cozy at the moment – which makes this cold slightly easier to handle. For the price and material it’s a great deal. They also seem to offer a lot of codes to get a deal which is fantastic. I know where I am purchasing any future bedding or home decor from. What I am most grateful for this week is haivng the opportunity to connect with so many people across the board for work. We are almost at 11,000 in our fundraiser for the app that is designed to help improve empathy skills. I am really proud of what we have accomplished so far and I am very excited about the future of it. I’ll attach the link below if you are interested in donating. I look at how far it’s come and what we can possibly achieve with it and it’s all very inspiring. I’m off to snuggle in some blankets but I hope you all enjoy a beautiful weekend. Thanks for reading!

Just a quick posting.

Life could have easily pulled me down this week. There were some moments where I could have been on the brink of chaos but I didn’t let it come to that. I didn’t allow myself to go under with what was happening around me and that’s kind of new for me. Did I feel it? Yes, of course. I’m still me but it didn’t become my every waking thought. I had to feel what I felt for a few minutes and then focus on all the good still going on. Something as simple as painting. I had this idea last week to redo the color of my walls and never did I think I would. It was just an idea that popped in my head. They happen all the time and for a lot of them I will get excited about it and then a day later I am moving on from the thought. Here we are a week later and I am sitting in my freshly painted surroundings. It’s a great feeling and something I want to follow through with this year. I can’t ideas fall to the waist side ( well unless it’s something like eating non stop for a day )  but ideas that make me excited about planning something. In certain aspects of my life I have lost control in planning so instead I will try and plan what I can.

Friday Little Love Moments : 2/10

Good evening! Another week has gone by and I am so pumped for the weekend to be here. We got hit with a snow storm yesterday that kept us indoors. Here I was saying that I am glad that I didn’t have any painting left to do with the roller because of my arms and then I had to shovel mounds of snow. I’m hoping to have after photos of the new room next week up. I just ordered a new duvet from H&M so I am waiting on that to snap some pics. I love it though. I can’t believe I managed to paint it by myself with breaking a hip on the stool. I’m so anxious about hanging anything back up on the walls because I was to preserve the surface for as long as I can after all that work. I do have to get some paint chips off the floor because apparently the tarp I used was not the greatest. I’ll be posting a tips collection about what not to do while painting and methods that helped me survive the process. It may not seem like a big deal to paint a room but for me it is because I actually went ahead with it. I’m trying to make this year more about following through when I have an idea instead of pushing it to the side. Doing well so far! How are you guys doing?


Friday Little Love Moments : 2/3


I am exhausted but I couldn’t miss a post! I’ve been repainting the room and i am so beyond fed up with paint & rollers & masking tape. I’m too short for this nonsense. I can’t move my stuff out so I’ve been working around it which has been a slight issue. I’d be done way faster but hey, what can what do. I hope to be finished tomorrow but let’s see if that works. I have been sleeping on the floor with blankets which I did all the time as a kid but my back is not cut out for it anymore. I can’t wait to get everything back in order! Hopefully, this paint job will be worth it. I did paint while naked * i know I know * but I couldn’t find an old shirt to work in and it was so warm. Let’s just say though that I have paint in places paint should never be. I’ll have to make a blog post about what not to do when painting because I’ll have plenty of tips to go around. That’s been my week so far! Hope you all are having a beautiful & safe week!!
