Five things on my mind. . .

1. Swim Suits. I took this picture a couple months ago and am in love with this style suit. But I need to find a way to make it more supportive (heyo nursing boobs!) and was thinking of cutting the straps to make it a halter (currently crosses in the back) but am scared of ruining it :/ But then I found this post (heyo beach body!) and now I just want to make myself a swim suit. I’m in love! Seems like a good birthday present to yourself, yeh?

And, yep, I just posted that. Because it’s my beach body, and I like it. I’m done ‘coming to terms’ with  my  body and into just liking it now.

2. SPRING TIME FOR THE MOTHER LOVE SHOW UP NOW. Okay, I’m not one to wish away the rainy months but after a snowy move, a week of sickness, and weeks of packing before that. . . we are ready to get out! explore! run! play! exercise! instead I feel like a cozy tired sloth. Looking at the photos on this blog, while I could never be a constant heat dweller, make me ache for gardens and sun soaked days. Ohhhhh come on PNW, turn up the heat!

3. Why didn’t I make an art corner sooner?! I’ll be posting more about this, because it has been amazing. Like, non stop creating and crafting and exploring and learning and WONDERFUL!

4. Dates. I want to get some writing down about marriage, marriage maintenance (doesn’t that sound romantic?) and how we do our best connecting even with the hubbub of life right now. But I always question if that is of interest to anyone or if it’s just such a personal thing that hearing about others’ experiences is pointless. Would you want to read about marriage? Or is that kinda…. drab?

5. All the hope projects. Like, they just swirl and swirl and swirl.. a bench there! a black wall there! a pink bookshelf mounted up there?! alluvit. Homeowners? Do those thoughts ever stop? I think I could think up insane DIY projects for the next fifty years, at least.

okay, one more, 6. I’m obsessed with rugs. This house has no carpeting so we want to cozy up lots of spaces. And, here are a couple I am aching for.

Swoony love for this one and this one too. Wish they came in bigger than 4×6!

OH OR THIS ONE !

  1. Your suit looks great Autumn! I love it. :) I need to go get one too.

  2. Jessica says:

    Awesome! You just inspired me to go order a new suit even though I’m not thrilled with my body right now. Beach vacation in a week! Gotta do it! Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. I’d love to read posts about marriage. We can exchange ideas. Love the suit, you look stunning.

  4. I would love marriage posts too.
    As to the homeowner stuff….I find the DIY tends to be: Oh shit, the electrical panel is getting wet from a leak in the roof, the bathroom subfloor is rotting underneath the tile, I can smell septic when I do laundry! And my driveway is flooded. Pink shelf? wha?

  6. You look amazing! Amen to loving your body!!! I’m still working on the ‘coming to terms’ thing. I’d love to read marriage posts :-)

  7. Adults ONLY I have struggled with sealing the deal, if you get my drift. This really helped me out!
