The rain is here in San Francisco and it is absolutely lovely! I know people like to complain about it but there's literally nothing we can do about it so why not just enjoy it! I love when it rains because I feel like it's the perfect excuse to skip getting ready. What's the point of doing your hair if it's going to get all wet!

One of the things that I have really experienced recently is that when your house is a beautiful and inspiring and calming place then it's easier to stay positive. After a busy day or a jam-packed schedule on the calendar, there is nothing better than coming home to a serene space.

I cannot tell you how happy we are that we moved. We are loving our new house and the space and the location and truly, just everything about it. Something funny though is Jesse has been at work or out of town for work a lot since we moved so I was teasing him that it's like he is on an interior design reality tv show and each time he comes home there is something new to show him! He gets the best part, though-- Claire and Mike have helped me move more things into our place than I can really thank them for!

My New Year's resolution this year was to just create a home for our family and for our friends. We love watching Lillian grow and thrive in this new space. 

We had a lot of initial costs when we moved in so we have been very budget friendly with our recent projects. Aside from splurging on textiles and pillows, I have loved getting most things at Target! I don't think you can really go wrong with anything from the Threshold Line from Target.

The image above is from one of my favorite designers Caitlin Wilson. I love her rugs but they are too expensive for our budget so I am keeping an eye out for something similar!

Have a great weekend!
