^5 + Nov20

Mondays are…well, Mondays. I want to give you a high five to start your week. Here are my high 5 : a space, my home base, a face, a word of grace, and a place.
+ SPACE +
This “mud room” is anything but. The pattern on the floor is balanced by the neutral walls and cabinets. I particularly love the natural wood bench that almost looks like it’s a blush color. I wonder if having a mudroom this pretty would be the solution to having it overrun with boots and shoes and jackets…it’s just too pretty to leave anything lying around!
+ MY HOME BASE +
We are gearing up for Thanksgiving over here. And by gearing up, I mean leaving things ’til the last minute. Ryan is working on demoing a family’s guest house and a couple little odd jobs here and there. I’ve got some back work going for a couple projects, and getting tons of visits from the UPS and FedEx guys. My office/shop is full of boxes for a bedroom project that I’ll be installing before Christmas (yay!). Ryan and I had some pics taken this past weekend by Swiss & Dot Photography for our website and social media accounts. I’ve had an unpublished “about” page on our website that is more about Ryan and I, just waiting for pics. I love Courtney’s light-filled pictures and overall style, so I knew I had to have her take our pics (she did our family photos this past summer as well).
+ FACE +
I don’t remember when I first stumbled upon @macymakesmyday on InstaGram, but I loved their family and their story immediately. Their story of adoption (x3), Down Syndrome, and advocacy is inspiring. Heather has a great blog and a new book The Lucky Few.
+ GRACE +
Some days we just need a word. Something that reminds us to keep on going and reminds us we’re not alone. It’s a grace to hear things like this:
+ PLACE +
In a world of CGI and green screens, something this fantastic seems like it’s straight out of a fairy tale, but it’s the real deal! I want to go to there.
Hope this ^5 starts your Monday out right!
