Design a life you love.

This phrase has been circling in my brain allllllll week long. I've seen it a thousand times before, but for some reason, this week it's really stuck. I've been spending a lot of my spare time whining and wishing...and it's kind of exhausting. So rather than complaining about unfortunate situations, I've decided to channel that negative energy into changing those situations. It's a long process, but I know the end result will be worth it.

In the meantime, I've been trying to make better use of my nights off. I spend entirely too much time 'pinning' DIY ideas and hardly any time, ya know...actually doing them. So last night, I dropped a pretty penny at Michael's and let my creative juices flow. Kaylee and I are trying to put the finishing touches on our apartment, and what better [and cheaper] way than to add a few acrylic canvases?

In case you needed clarification, that is a tree. Clearly, I am no Matisse, and this lighting is pretty awful, but hey, it was a fun Thursday night project. I spent about two hours with several paintbrushes and The Civil Wars and it was the most relaxing time I've had in awhile. Here's to designing something

Happy Friday! XO
