Hi there! Hope you had a great weekend!
Atlanta finally got the memo that fall is around the corner and we enjoyed some blue skies and cooler temps this weekend. It was a busy and fun weekend too! After several years of praying for and crying with, we finally got to celebrate my bestie’s baby shower. Oh, and Sweet P had his first soccer game so that was quite a joy! Nothing like a herd of 4 year old’s running around to make you smile.
Today I am back with week two of the Back to Basics series. As a reminder, this is a 4 week series where we are sharing some of our super simple tips to help simplify your life.
Today mine is so easy, I hate to even call it a tip.
Think of it more as as a mantra. A promise. A pledge. Ready?
Say it with me y’all.
“I WILL ALWAYS HAVE FRESH FLOWERS WHEN HOSTING.”
But wait! I can’t buy fresh flowers- it’s No Spendtember and it’s naptime and I haven’t showered. Sound familiar?
Really, all you have to do is grab your scissors and walk outside. I GUARANTEE you will find something pretty and free.
Here you can see a simple vase with Trader Joe’s sunflowers. Sure. Anyone can do that. And yes, it’s happy and lovely. But I also am showing a completely free version with Gardenia clippings. It’s also happy and lovely.
Um, does anything smell more divine than Gardenia clippings?
