Hi friends, and happy 1st of December! I can’t believe we are already to the last month of the year, but I’m so excited for the festive season. Mine is kicking off tonight with a fun holiday event I’m hosting at Madewell in Little Rock, and I hope to see some of you there to chat capsule wardrobes and blogging! As I was thinking about December content, I wanted to challenge myself to do more. As my Christmas break approaches, (perks of working in education!) I’m looking forward to more time to spend on my content, and I’m tentatively planning on posting either a blog post or a video each day through Christmas. If you have any requests, send them my way! For now here are some festive links to check out. From velvet heels to yummy recipes, let’s get the season started!
All Things Cozy
Happy weekend friends! I hope this Saturday finds you with some time to rest and embrace all things cozy. A chill has come to Little Rock this week, and when I’ve been home, I’ve been huddled up with cozy sweaters and innumerable cups of tea. I spent today helping my grandfather set up a Christmas village, something he used to do every year when I was growing up! This year we set up a miniature London for some holiday events, and it was so special to help him put it together. Over the rest of the weekend I’m looking forward to some reading, music rehearsals, and maybe a little bit of popcorn and Hulu.
It’s the weekend, and I’m excited about it! This week marked my first full week back at teaching, and I’m enjoying getting settled into a routine. It’s so fun to have so many of the same students back this year, and I can’t wait to watch how they grow as pianists. Apart from teaching, I’ve been working on one of my new year’s resolutions this week. I set myself the goal of completing 10 days of The Miracle Morning, which involves a 5 a.m. wake-up time. Right now I’ve finished two days, and although it’s been a challenge to get myself up early, I’m really enjoying the extra quiet morning hours. It’s also helping me get through my reading list, and I’m loving that. This weekend I’m planning to work on a sewing project, (hopefully for a new video tutorial on Sunday!) do more reading, and maybe pay a visit to my favorite local park for a walk with coffee.
Some links for the weekend:
Cheers to the Weekend!
Happy weekend friends! As I looked back through my blog post archives recently, I noticed that the last time I published The Weekender was back in April! This summer I’ve struggled to keep up with normal routines, but as we approach fall, I’m ready for routine again, starting with blogging routines. If you’re new around here, The Weekender is a weekly collection of my favorite links from around the web as well as a little catch-up on what I’ve been up to over the past week.
Happy weekend, and happy April friends! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful week! I’ve been getting back into the teaching routine after spring break, and things are getting busy as the school year draws to a close. My students are prepping for a recital, and it’s so fun to be on the teaching side of a performance. Apart from work, my week was full of spending time with friends, working on YouTube content, #nationalstripesday, and recovering from last week’s cold. Spring has arrived in Little Rock, and I’m so starting to look forward to switching my wardrobe over for the warmer weather. I’ve collected a few new pieces for my spring capsule, and I’m so excited to share them with you all! For now, it’s time for another round of weekend links.
