In My Dreams

People. Selling a house, looking for a new one and, you know, still having to go on with day to day life and responsibilities... it's kicking my butt. Poor Dan has had to deal with me through meltdown after meltdown, and unfortunately I'm not sure there's a clear end in sight. To keep myself sane for at least a few minutes, I thought it'd be fun to look at some recent pins of perfect, amazing, beautiful rooms that I will most definitely use as inspiration in our new home (whenever we manage to actually find one!)

Behold -

built-ins, books and window seats = heaven

farmhouse table for the win

a bananas half bath

a bold accent wall for the fireplace

mixed colors, patterns and surfaces done perfectly

tuxedo kitchen + open shelving

breakfast nooks make me think of summers in Wisconsin

oriental rugs and bentwood chairs pretty much always make me swoon

They call it Love.

Today marks 7 and a half years of officially dating the one and only Dan Lawler. And, of course, it's also Valentine's Day. I'm spending the evening with my favorite guy, and we have no plans the remainder of the weekend - I don't think it gets much better than that. I'm thinking I'll schedule a few blog posts, do some reading, and maybe start thinking about a packing plan since we're moving in, um, 6 weeks.

Happy Valentine's Day friends! Hope it's lovely.
