a day in the life | my living room refresh

over the past few months, we’ve introduced our a day in the life series where we give you regular updates and tours of my home.  we’ve walked you through everything from my kitchen to my downstairs basement.  we love interior design and decorating over here on the blog, and given how much time i’ve had at home lately, i decided to tweak my living and dining room.  i’m a big believer in change and mixing things up.  and an easy way to implement change is to start at home and rearrange things a bit.  it feels good, i promise.  so join us today and take a tour of my living room refresh.

how to wear white

it’s memorial day weekend, and what says summer more than the graphic tee.  they’re just fun, and let’s face it, we continue to need some fun in our lives.  what i love about the graphic tee is that they literally go with anything:  jeans, shorts, or pants.  dress them up, or dress them down—there are endless ways in which you can pull one off.  because  it’s Sunday, i raided the archives and pulled out four of my favorite outfits from the past year styling graphic tees.  in addition, i rounded up my 10 favorite graphic tees for this season.  so sit back and relax:  we’re talking how to wear a graphic tee on the blog today.

walking with a spring in my step | life update

oh, happy day! not only are my gorgeous Nikko blue hydrangeas blooming (my favorite flower after peonies) but i thought i’d share today how i’m dealing with my knee surgery. yesterday, i had my six-week post-surgery check-up, and i’ve been discharged from physical therapy. everything is A-Okay with my new plastic knee. but now the real work begins. it’s time to hit the gym, ramp up my walks, hop on my Peloton, and get the recommended 10,000 steps in. what’s my plan? a ten-day detox for starters (i’ve turned to these many times through the years for a reboot) to cleanse my system from the effects of surgery and anesthesia. both trigger the release of stress hormones that activate inflammatory responses in the immune system. inflammation worsens many diseases, including heart disease, cancer,  dementia, and can even trigger type 2 diabetes. surgery undoubtedly causes pain, stress, and anxiety but couple that with anesthesia and low body temperatures during surgery, and you get an immune system that’s been rattled in a BIG way. but i’m thankful for modern medicine and my new bionic knee.

    Beth, reviewing favorite posts each month is like looking at pics of a trip from which you just returned. You’re gifted at lifting up spirits, challenging us to step outside our comfort zone, and so much more. The blog breezes into our lives everyday because of the hard work you’ve put into it. That it appears effortless means you’re very good at what you do. Kudos to the whole team!~
