I recently felt like it was time to update my fireplace mantle to feel refreshed for spring. I wanted to add some new pieces that made it feel really fresh and new, yet still fit with the rest of the room. I did some hunting and pulled together nice pieces that layered together well. Since I bought almost all of it recently, I wanted to share where to grab it for yourself!
All the pieces are affordable and really classic so that you can continue to use throughout the year. Happy shopping!

I hope this post finds you well and that you are surviving the winter freeze. It has been below 0 almost every day for the last week in Minnesota, and I’m going a little stir crazy. During times like this, I just try to stay inspired and think of things to look forward to.
Some of those things include all of the fun things we will get to go back to doing once we are vaccinated! I’m looking forward to having a reason to dress up, attending events like concerts and football games, seeing friends again, and being able to run an in person marathon. Until then, I will continue to dream.
In this month’s what I’m loving, I pulled some inspiration of my favorite things, that all happen to be pretty in pink. I hope it brightens your day just a little!

A few months ago, I shared that I had to take time off of running due to an injury. I ended up having a stress fracture at the top of my tibia, as well as swelling in the fat pad of my knee, that was causing my kneecap to move around and pinch when I ran (ouch!). After 11 weeks off of running, physical therapy, and a steroid injection, I was cleared to rebuild running.

Happy Super Bowl weekend! Although your party and gatherings will be much different this year (as the big game itself), its still a fun day to relax and have some fun. I’ve done a few posts in the past about my football party snacks, treats, and a free printable card, and thought I would round up everything for you today!

Now that I have been working from home for almost a year, I’ve had to adjust routines in order to stay productive and prevent burnout. Its all too easy to roll out of bed, grab my computer, and then realize the day is over and all I did was stare at a screen.
I’ve tried to set some structure to my days to help me be more productive. Surprisingly, a lot of the structure is about setting up more “away” time so that when I work, I can be really focused and productive. I’ve found that this routine allows me to feel less burnt out, while still getting my work done.
