The one with some jumbled thoughts.

Things have been a little crazy lately. My mind is full of ideas for our house, this blog, and work. I wish I could just take a break from life and come back in a week or two with a huge game plan. ;)

In the first month of my happiness project, I loved the feeling of clearing away clutter. The action of clearing away physical clutter really left my mind more peaceful and organized. In an effort to chase that feeling, I'm working on a major "stuff" overhaul (need inspiration? check here and here).

My goal is to have a closet filled with only things I love, a kitchen filled with only things I use, and drawers not filled with miscellaneous junk.

I will keep you updated on my progress. In the meantime, here are a few photos from a lazy weekend morning spent enjoying good food and time with Jeremy at Market Salamander in Middleburg.

Oh! Two more things - don't forget to enter the Christina Nicole giveaway, and my friend Ada visited the other week. Click here to see photos of our little adventure. :)


  1. Remember the quick win! Maybe write down every single thing you can think of and then prioritize. Thinking of you!

  2. Your lazy weekend looks like it was perfect :) And I love your dress!
    I agree... life needs to slow down for just a minute. I wish we had a pause button sometime's!

  3. I love a good lazy weekend :) It's much needed when life gets a bit crazy!

  4. I've been revitalizing my bedroom at home and I totally know what you're dealing with it! Good luck! (And those photos are gorgeous!

  5. I desperately need to declutter, purely because I'm out of places to put things. It's such a good feeling when it's done!

  6. WOW! What are the odds we post a similar post on the same day?! <3

  7. oh my your photos are so lovely! i could use a good spring cleaning, i've always thought it would be lovely to have a closet full of only things i actually wear and love... definitely not the case right now!

  8. Jealous!!!! I wish we had cutesy little places like that to frequent in Arizona.

  9. i need to get rid of clutter too! thanks for the inspiration! and i love that quote in that photo. :)

  10. I have been feeling the EXACT same way. I told Glenn the other night how I wish I could throw everything in our house away and start fresh haha. I really want to get rid of the things that we don't use and are just taking up space!

  11. "I wish I could just take a break from life and come back in a week or two with a huge game plan." Um, hi? We are the same person. Except that you have way better clothes.

    I hear you on the de-cluttering...I've been attempting to do that, myself! I feel so much more at ease when things are organized and when the extra fluff is out of the way.

    And, as always, your photos make me swoon.

  12. What a cute dress.. love it with the little clutch. I am so all about physical decluttering right now (and mental). That is definitely something I need to do!

  13. Love these photos, Ash. They make me want to take a stroll downtown ;)

  14. I've been clearing out the clutter too - as you know from our tweets! :)

    I LOVE those earrings of yours!

  15. Its hard to write when there are so many thoughts in your head isnt' it? I run into this often. Your weekend morning looks fantastic though!

  16. what a fun dress you have! also i can totally relate about having too many ideas and thoughts running around. I spend many a sleepless night that way :/


  17. I need to try this strategy! I just finished moving so I think this is the perfect time to go through everything. xoxo Marissa


  18. Lovely photos. This also really resonated with me- "My goal is to have a closet filled with only things I love, a kitchen filled with only things I use, and drawers not filled with miscellaneous junk."
    Yes, yes, yes. I'm moving to a new apartment in 5 days and it's RIDICULOUS the amount of junk that I've collected in a year, but I can't seem to let much of it go ):

  19. lovely photos. I need to declutter my bedroom drawers soon.

  20. I've just discovered your blog, so I'm a new reader! I love your pictures. But the one of Jeremy drinking made me stop for a minute. The labels on the bottle look similar to my home town beer. He's not drinking that I know, but I was taken aback for a minute. <3 from Tasmania
