Friday Five | No. 8

Happy Friday! Can you believe tomorrow we’re halfway through May? I don’t know about you but 2021 is absolutely flying by for me. I cannot believe in 16 days we’ll be entering Summer and the halfway mark of the year. Definitely starting to feel a little pressure to cross some goals off my list, make a few plans happen, and just do more overall. What about you? Starting to feel that as well or already making things happen?

One thing I did make happen this week that I’ve been wanting to cross of my list, redo the gallery wall between our living room and casual dining room. While I loved our previous one, I felt it didn’t quite match our home or bring the spaces together. This go around I went very simple with four of the exact same frames. I opted for the largest size so they would really fill up the space. I will share more once I have the frames filled with new prints.

Speaking of home decor, below you will find my Friday five, five of my favorite finds from this week – including one home find I believe belongs in our home!

Joshua and I have become quite the garden enthusiast since moving into our home – we can’t stop planting plants, trees, shrubs, and are currently planning our summer garden. I love the idea of planting specifically for wildlife! This little book shares how to rewild your garden. A super sweet gift for any gardener in your life! Would also be a great housewarming gift.
