Young House Love featured this fabulous kitchen redo from one of their readers. They transformed their outdated kitchen with only $1,207! Love it!

An awesome PB hack! Jessica from Running with Scissors turned an old light fixture into a PS-esque lantern.

I’m loving my new Sweet and Simple Birdie necklace from Lisa Leonard. Chirp!

Simple Mom has been speaking to my heart lately. Go read all of these posts. Go now. Immediately stop reading my drivel and go hang out with Simple Mom.

Perfection: the thief of good enough – You know I’m a fan of “good enough”. But sometime I forget.

Stress is a choice – Makes me think about what other feelings might be choices. Anger? Irritation? Maybe love?

Simplify your space with a fresh pair of eyes – I’m feeling a huge desire to simplify right now.

Disclosure: My friend, Lisa Leonard sent me that adorable birdie necklace to wear and see if I loved it. If I did, I could tell you about it. I did (wear it) and I do (love it) so I am (telling you about it).

Yes, Love is a choice! That has been our mantra since my husband and I got married. It is a choice, not a feeling. We just celebrated our 8th anniversary, and are as “in love” as ever, even when we may not exactly feel like it. I’ve never thought about Stress being a choice though…I’m off to read that post!

Thanks for sharing Simple Mom this morning.. I’ve been choosing stress a lot lately. Hmm, what kind of day would I have with the kids and shopping if I didn’t. I’m such a slow learner!

Thank you for this insightful post. Never thought stress could be a choice. I’m going to try to choose not to be stressed. Easily said right. Enjoy simplifying your life. 🙂

Have a good weekend!

Great spotlights, Kimba!
That kitchen is gorgeous, and Lisa’s birdie necklace is just too cute. Love her.
And what a great idea to turn that light into a lantern.
Have a wonderful long weekend!
