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.
Less is More
The change in seasons always motivates me to lighten up my life, and this fall that has manifested itself in a hefty declutter of my belongings. Stuff accumulates so quickly, and I find that I need to do a good declutter at least once a year. During this most recent organization and decluttering spree, I was surprised both by how much I had collected, and how much I could say goodbye to with no regrets. I went through several categories of belongings, and today I’m sharing those with you. I’ll also be sharing my favorite apps for selling those items once you’ve decided to let them go. Let’s get rid of stuff!
Busy Times; Happy Times
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.

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.
I love YouTube. One of my favorite ways to chill out after work is to make a good cup of tea or coffee, and sit down to catch up on my favorite channels. When I first started to get into the YouTube world, most of the channels I watched focused primarily on makeup and skincare, but over the past couple of years, I’ve come to love channels that focus on personal style. I love the creativity that goes into each video, and I always walk away with inspiration for new ways to wear the items in my closet. Since fashion channels are a little more difficult to come across, today I’m rounding up my four current favorites.
