a celebratory weekend at home

this weekend was such a treat. 

we celebrated valentine's day early on saturday with coffee at one of our favorite stops & surprise dinner reservations in a town nearby. 

luke spoiled me this year with a gorgeous bouquet of flowers in brown paper packaging from flora & a box of colorful macarons from a downtown macaron shop. i treated him to local coffee roasted by our friends, two nice button-up shirts & a gift card to his favorite coffee shop. sweet & simple gestures on this extra special day. 

i also managed to tackle a handful of areas within our home that were in need of extra attention. 

i reorganized our canning closet & purged our guest bedroom closet. i also tackled our china cabinet, letting go of a few dishes & only displaying items that get the most use within our home. my office is even getting a little fluffing with a new desk & the addition of woven sheer curtains.

it feels so good to make space in our home to just live & enjoy each other. i can promise you, i'm no minimalist. i love beautiful things, cozy corners, a stack of well-worn blankets & family heirlooms, but the act of purging & reorganizing is such a refresher to the space we love dearly. 

a celebratory weekend spent at home was just what we needed. it feels so good to start our monday having spent a little time picking up & planning for the week ahead.

wishing you all the best in the week ahead!

how was your weekend? are you tackling those organizational & purging projects? please share!

We decided at the last minute to go out for breakfast on Friday - no plans for the weekend except to cook dinner together on Friday & Saturday evenings. When you've been married 28 yrs every day becomes Valentine's Day.

i just read marie kondo's book on tidying up. i love the motivation it's given me to get rid of some things!
