The Friday Edit

The Friday Edit. Check out my list of the top reads, interesting posts, delicious recipes, and MORE from the week. #weekendreading #fridayedit #recap #seattle #pnw #ballard #sailing #PNWsailing #fall #autumn #PNWfall #seattlefall

Happy Friday, guys. It’s been a weird, long week, mostly because I’m still getting back to 100% after my health scare. I get really tired very easily, so life has been this weird mix of wishing I could do more, trying to do it, getting exhausted, feeling frustrated, napping, and then starting that cycle all over again. It sucks… especially when all I want to do is enjoy the Pacific Northwest autumn. Earlier this week I was able to go sailing and it was so damn wonderful. I loved feeling the crisp, salty air in my newly fixed lungs and being out and about, even if I was just sitting there. Each day is bringing me a little more activity and movement, so I need to focus on that and my healing.

Keep reading for my must-reads of the week, the best sales to shop, & a recap of anything you might have missed here on the blog!

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by The Seattle Home Show. All opinions are my own and always will be! Thanks for supporting the content that keeps Jojotastic going.

In this digital age, it’s really easy to get home decor ideas online, but to me, nothing beats an in-person experience. I love traveling for inspiration, wandering local boutiques, and perusing magazines. Anything that is hands on usually equals lots of inspiration for me! Next week I am excited to attend my first ever Seattle Home Show to get even more inspiration for our tiny bungalow and additional interior design projects!

Instagram and I have a love/hate relationship, but one of my favorite things about it is that I’m able to connect with some truly wonderful people. In this case, I’m talking about Mary Interiano of This Thrifted Abode. I’m not even entirely sure how we connected, but Mary is one of the loveliest, most genuine people I’ve had the honor of meeting through that platform. Her home is artfully layered with boho touches spread throughout. I knew she would be the perfect interviewee for my Small Space Squad series, so let’s take a step inside and tour this small home!
