stripes, schedules, and managing stress

Well if that isn’t a blog title to pull you right in, ha.  Sorry for the silence, it’s been a wild week.  Lots of good things going on, but I haven’t had a moment to sit down and think, much less write.  Maybe you’re feeling the same busyness in your life right now.  Last night I had to put on my p.j.’s and crawl into bed before everyone else so I could function properly today.  Some weeks I’m just like “okay, how much more can we cram into the schedule?”  Nobody’s fault of course, but things always seem to hit in waves.  That being said, I thought it would be helpful to write a post on my favorite tips to managing a busy schedule until I realized I’ve already written about that AND my favorite ways to manage stress.  Funny.  If you didn’t get read these tips before, I’ll link them at the bottom of this post.

Before rushing off to my next adventure, I leave you with a few pretty things and some inspiration.  If I could teleport myself anywhere right now, it would be to this Greek Island villa.  More pics, tour, and all the to-die-for vacay deets here.  I just read it and almost passed out.  LOVE everything.  This scene, in particular, is so inspiring.

A gorgeous villa with private pool and Albania mountain views?  I’ll take it.  Vacation goals times 1,000.

Mental regroup.

Found some pretties that have a stripey vibe like that luscious porch scene above.

Dying over these outdoor striped pillows.  So cheap.  And thank you, Smith & Hawken, for not making these beauties only 18″.

Classic silver lanterns are always great.  Here.


Also spotted these beautiful baskets, which can be found here.  A little more of an investment, but so good-looking.
