Dedicated to Nan, seventeen years too long
You guys, here lately I’ve had this mad desire to “cleanse” my entire existence. I want to smudge everything, throw out things I’ve been holding onto for years, and, just change up everything! Let me tell you! November 30th is going to be one year that I haven’t eaten a Xanax pill. I don’t know if you are aware of my story, but, I have struggled with addiction since I was 16. Always the same pill. Always the same outcome. Last year, the week leading up to my sobriety day was a lonely one. I was always bitching about feeling overwhelmed, and I was, but, I was only searching for the negativity. When that’s your mindset, that’s all you’ll see! When you expect life to be shit, it will be shit. MY IMPACT on my life was shit. Yes. Xanax is a prescription drug. Yes, a doctor writes it for you. And, yes, some people actually need it for the reasons it is prescribed. Most often than not, your anxiety levels are not high enough (excluding a major devastation) for a fucking dose of Xanax… just saying…
So, I am on a mission of change! A visioned place of peace to reflect on the day, decompress from the loud noises and, God bless their little hearts, hide away from my beautiful babies. (I also created their space for them to hide away from me!! haha!) If you’re a homebody and, would rather shop from home without having to run into everyone you knew from high school, then Amazon is perfect for you.
I wanted to flow with the change of seasons, as well as the changes in our home so I chose a neutral charcoal gray and, worked my way outwards with bright colors like yellow and burnt orange. I think when you have bright mixed over dark, it really makes it pop. In the girls rooms, I wanted to tie their beds together while still giving them their own individuality. What better way to decorate a little girls room than flowers?! That’s what my sister and I had growing up. Britt had roses and me, sunflowers… so needless to say, I have a fabulous nostalgia when I look at the girls, in their room.
As I lay here in my bed, watching P fall asleep next to me, I think about this space,our bedroom. Where Josh and I go intertwine to recharge our minds, bodies, and souls. Where our children run when they’ve had a bad dream. Where we pile up to just feel cozy and safe, together. This space had to be special. Soft. Warm. That’s the inspiration for the changes that have been made. Just like when I was a child, I change things about myself and around me CONSTANTLY.
The sheets I chose actually have a back story. I feel like I beat the system with these guys! There is this older gentleman that comes to our area once a year with these same sheet sets and he sells them for an outrageous amount of money. Like, no.
So, when I accidently came across the same sheets for Ry’s bed, I was immediately ordering a set for our bed. I told everyone of my discovery and I see that I’m doing it again here!
Trust me… Affordable and amazing!
The sudden dip in temperature required a heavier blanket. Since we use a down comforter covered with a duvet, I chose one in velvet; velu velvet!! There is nothing better than a hot ass shower and then to climb into the comfort of your spot. We all have “our side” of the bed!
I’m going to link my entire space for you to shop! Enjoy!!
