I watch a lot of remodeling, house flipping, and real estate type shows. Considering how often they are featured, you would think that someone would mention that farmhouse sinks are high maintenance. Check out this article to find out the reasons you may not what a farmhouse sink after all.
I’ve been living in my current place for over a year now and I’m still looking for entryway solutions. I’m working with a very small space so most suggestions have been too large. I finally found an article that has some slim options. 9 Tiny Entryways with Seriously Big Organization Ideas from apartmenttherapy.com
Videos to Watch

After striking out with 2 different glowy primers to help with my dry skin issues, I’ve been on the hunt again. I found this video from Kelly Gooch that has some good recommendations to look into.
Words to think about
This is a quote I refer back to often. In honor of being blessed enough to celebrate my 38th birthday yesterday, it seemed fitting.
“For sure we live in a youth-obsessed culture that is constantly trying to tell us that if we’re not young and glowing and “hot,” we don’t matter. But I refuse to buy into such a distorted view of reality. And I would never lie about or deny my age. To do so is to contribute to a sickness pervading our society—the sickness of wanting to be what you’re not. I know for sure that only by owning who and what you are can you step into the fullness of life. I feel sorry for anyone who buys into the myth that you can be what you once were. The way to your best life isn’t denial. It’s owning every moment and staking a claim to the here and now. You’re not the same woman you were a decade ago; if you’re lucky, you’re not the same woman you were last year. The whole point of aging, as I see it, is change. If we let them, our experiences can keep teaching us about ourselves. I celebrate that. Honor it. Hold it in reverence. And I’m grateful for every age I’m blessed to become.” — Oprah Winfrey, What I Know for Sure
