Happy Saturday! Grab a cup of coffee and snuggle up in your favorite seat of the house as we chat about all things home, life, and randomness.
When do you classify the season as officially summer? Is it when the kids get out of school? Or is Memorial Day the summer kickoff for you? Or do you still call it springtime until the calendar says it’s the first day of summer? In our house, we start saying “summer” after Memorial Day, and ever since Monday it has felt like summer.
Every summer I like to sit down with my family and write out our bucket list for the season. It doesn’t have to be a super elaborate plan, it is just a guide to help us decide what to do on a day we have free. Without our family summer bucket list, we end up just sitting around the TV watching reruns of shows we’ve seen a hundred times.
Do you make a summer bucket list? And if so, what’s at the top of the list for you this year?
What’s On My Mind This Saturday Morning
While doing my big garage cleanup, I found these QR code labels for the storage totes. They’re going to be the most helpful thing ever!
My son hosted a graduation party with his friends last night, and you could find me hiding wherever possible popping into Illuminate Your Vibe‘s live sale. Let’s just say I kept getting distracted so I don’t even remember how many new crystal babies I’m adding to my collection. Oops.
Can you put wallpaper over painted wallpaper? Our guest room has old wallpaper that has been painted by the previous owners and I want to put up a feature wall mural. Can I be lazy and not take down the old paper?
Speaking of the guest room, I’m already planning my next project. Sure, I haven’t even finished the garage project yet, but I always have something on the backburner. I sent pictures to a virtual design service to get some ideas. Can you guess which one? I’ll share more soon.

Father’s Day Gift Guide
The Father’s Day Gift Guide is up on the blog and it’s a good one! No ties to be found on this roundup, just a bunch of cool stuff Dad will actually want this year. I’m giggling a little over here about Father’s Day, thinking about how my son and I attempted to hide Nigel’s new grill under a bunch of boxes in my Studio. Good thing he rarely goes in there because our “hidden grill” looked extra obvious!
One Last Thought
I would love to know what kind of content you want to see here on the blog over the summer. I know we all have very different lifestyles and schedules, so I’d like to hear what you’ve got planned. Are you going to be organizing and decluttering to prep for Back To School season? Are you traveling? Are you taking time off from projects? Let me know what you’ve got going on and what you want to see here on the blog this season.
