friday loves vol. 7

1 || I have the sweetest quilty friends. My girlfriend and I organized a personal swap between four of us using dwell blocks from Camille Roskelley's book simply retro in cotton + steel fabrics. They are really bold and modern, sometimes even funky fabric patterns. Two of the girls finished their blocks to mail to the rest, and I got the most darling package from my sweet friend, Angie! Not only are her five dwell blocks absolutely lovely but she put in some thoughtful extras. I immediately washed and put away the Wisconsin starbucks mug with my other "you are here" mugs. So sweet!

2 || Candelles freshly brewed is my jam right now. I love lighting it in the evening after the babe finally falls asleep. It is the perfect coffee house scent; not bitter at all with a hint of hazelnut.

3 || Austen took Sophia to the store for 30+ minutes while I set up her nursery. Her room is the sweetest. We chose to set up the nursery in the darkest, quietest room of the house so that it can remain the nursery and we can move her out into a big girl room when we need the nursery for another baby. I put up a pair of blackout curtains and dark decorative curtains over them since her room does face the west. For the time being, it's a very simple set up since there's still no carpet in the bedrooms. We currently have her in the pack n play since putting together and taking apart her crib for carpeting seemed like an unnecessary pain in the butt. I cannot wait to continue putting together this sweet little room of greys + golds with touches of soft pinks and bold purples.

And yes, I fully recognize that the picture is not "social media quality". But when you have a toddler, crappy lighting (hello, it's a dark room for practical reasons), you deal with what you can get. I'll show ya'll pretty pictures once our carpet comes in.

4 || I love the pictures my family gets of Sophia now that we're all together again. She is absolutely perfect, in my completely biased opinion.

5 ||  Austen & I both agreed that we wanted this home to stay as clutter free as possible so that we could have family and friends over without the stress of picking up in a hurry. We went through the life changing magic of tidying up twice while we lived in Las Vegas, and are unpacking slowly. Just taking the time to make sure we have a want and need for each time we keep. I'm honestly loving the slow pace of settling in. There's very little on our walls right now, just a handful of necessary items are in plain view; everything else is organized away in closets.
