the friday edit

Happy Friday, you guys! This post is publishing a little late in the day, sorry about that. I feel like apologizing for being late is the story of my life these days thanks to the exhausting work of balancing running the blog and renovating the bedroom at the same time. If you’ve caught my Instagram stories lately, you know why… we are deep in the throes of renovating the bedroom and it is hard work. I have found this process to not only be physically taxing, but also emotionally draining. It’s hard to see the biggest expense of your life ripped down to bare studs. I’ve also found that digging deeper (literally) into my home has made my love for it grow to proportions I never thought possible. Like as we were stripping away over 17 (SEVENTEEN) layers of wallpaper yesterday, my heart was bursting with love for this tiny home of mine and all of it’s rich history. Be sure to stay tuned to my stories this weekend, lots more renovation glimpses coming!

    Is that picture of wallpaper from YOUR home?? It’s kinda fantastic! I love uncovering past layers in a house — even though they are a pain in the a**, it’s fascinating to see the different eras of design play out backwards. Also that crystal post is so fun!
