M2: February Coffee Break

Like I said last month, I wanted to start these monthly coffee breaks so we can get to know each other a little bit more, and where I can share some life updates, blog updates, goals for the month, and a few things that have been on my mind lately! 


Little life update, I was in Birmingham all of last weekend for a staff training meeting for a young adult retreat for the Diocese of Alabama later this year, and we had so much fun exploring the city on Saturday afternoon! My favorite kind of weather! 


1. Something I learned this month (yesterday, actually!):

The furniture pieces that I've been calling coffee table ottomans for.. as long as i've seen ottomans with flat tops being used in the place of coffee tables(with decorative trays/accents on top of them) have a name! They are  actually called Cocktail Ottomans! 

Here's a few of my favorite ones:

$347:  Madison Park Aberdeen Blue Oval Ottoman

ON SALE $187.64, Regularly $430.00: Baxton Studio Iglehart Linen Modern Tufted Ottoman

And if I didn't have a budget, I love this: Axel Leather Ottoman, ON SALE $399, Regularly $499

2. A quote: 

"I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes. Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You're doing things you've never done before, and more importantly, you're doing something.

3. A musician/band I love right now 

Anderson East.

Gotta support Bama folks. I'm going to be on the search for one of his vinyls for the foreseeable future.

4. Latest Home Obsession:

Tiny cacti and succulents!  See Instagram for Examples, HERE.

5. Goal for this month:

Write at least 4 blog posts. Post consistently on Instagram, and continue commenting & interacting with everyone! I love the little group over on Instagram – I hit a major milestone back in December (TWO THOUSAND followers!) and I've love to keep that growing! It's so fun to find so many new accounts to be inspired by! 

Also, finish "spring cleaning" my room! I took EVERYTHING out yesterday to go through/organize and ya'll. it's a mess right now. Blog post coming soon I hope!
