How are we a week into June already?
It is SO beautiful here in Colorado this weekend. Denver is going to be in the high 90s as we get some of that Southwestern heat. Phoenix is going to be about 115! It makes me thankful that we moved – it is just SO hot!
This summer weather makes me wish I was going up to the mountains this weekend. The mountains are beautiful in every season and summer is no exception. As a kid I would go to camp every summer up there and I remember the smell of the mountains in the summertime.
The mornings are crisp and the fresh scent of the pine trees fills the air. The afternoons would be warm and you could smell the earth releasing as it would unfold to meet the day. An afternoon hike would always seem to call for rain. Just a little bit. And evenings were for bonfires and sweaters as a slight chill settled over to prepare our surroundings to be tucked in for sleep. I loved every bit of it.
And after writing this I want to jump in my car and head up!
UPDATE: My hubby had a scan and his tumor has shrunk after his surgery. Thank God for that miracle!! He just keeps fighting through it. For anyone who might be fighting through something, or with somebody fighting through, just keep going. And stay positive. Your mind is a powerful tool and you are in control of it.
- Working on my master closet makeover plan. Yep, I am building my dream master closet soon. If you missed my IG stories you know that I have been collecting items from IKEA to transform my master closet. You will never know it is IKEA – and I can’t wait!
To begin, I am thinking about wallpapering my closet, as well. These are some of my favorites that I am considering.I want something neutral but subtle.
- Deep cleaning my daughter’s room. The teenager is out of town visiting a friend so I am going in there to do a deep clean. Anyone with teenagers knows exactly why. The last adult to see her room said, and I quote, “does an animal live in here?”. I laughed. Teens are notoriously unaware of their surroundings.
- Ordering some new garage organization. We are finishing the garage next month. I don’t know why builders don’t finish the garage. Since this was a spec home when we bought it I did’t have the option to have it finished up front so it sits in its stud form. And we don’t like it. I am ordering this cabinet to begin to get organized. I am giddy with excitement!
I am most excited about my closet build!! I am making major changes in there so I hope you will follow along. I really want to tear it all apart today, but the less insane part of me says I need to keep the chaos to a minimum. My summer is really busy and FULL of projects so I will update you on when I start.
