I feel a renewed sense of life and inspiration this week with the spring-like weather! I know it’s going to end (40s and snow forecasted next week, yuck!!), but L and I have enjoyed being outside as much as possible and it’s given us energy and joy that we haven’t felt in months. Even though we’ve been busy playing, I’ve rounded up some friday favorites and I’m sharing them below!
> If you follow me on Instagram, you will know that I’ve been craving orange juice and lemonade throughout this pregnancy. Although I love both, they are both very high in sugar, and although I’m eating sugar occasionally with this pregnancy, I’m trying to cut refined sugars where I can. I recently became aware of an Ohio based sparkling tea company called Spritz Tea. The tea is bubbly but zero sugar, non-alcoholic, and only real ingredients. I’ve been trying them out all week and they are a great alternative to the juices and lemonade I’ve been craving. Check them out by clicking here and use the code TRYSPRITZ to receive 10% off your order!
P.s. these would pair deliciously with vodka or gin for a yummy summer cocktail!
> I’ve been shopping for some small sweet items to fill up Lilly’s Easter basket. Click here to see what I bought her!
> This week on the blog I shared my (very small) plans for growing a flower garden this summer. To celebrate this new project, I paired up with two fellow garden lovers to host a giveaway on our Instagrams! Head on over to my page to enter to win a gardening kit. Giveaway ends today!
> My latest home decor obsession is Home Again with the Fords. I’ve been following Leanne and Steve Ford for several years and I adore their style. They are back with a new show where they restore people’s childhood homes in Pittsburgh. Although their design style is not coastal, I love and appreciate their design decisions so much. They always make me remember and appreciate why I love design and art. And Leanne’s fashion choices remind me so much of my time in New York – I love! The show airs on HGTV.
> My friend Stephanie from Linen and Littles is sharing an incredibly brave post this week. Stephanie is living with MS and she often shares her journey on her blog and Instagram. This week in particular is MS Awareness Week and Stephanie shared a very powerful glimpse into what it’s been like living with MS, especially with two young toddlers. Click here for the read.
