I swear I am not turning my blog into a home & decor blog. But right now I’m obsessed with making our house a home.
Last weekend, I decided to wake up early in the morning to take a walk around the neighborhood, meet neighbors, and get a few ideas for landscaping. Where I stayed previously, it wasn’t possible to do this. There weren’t too many people who cared about manicured and neatly trimmed lawns. So since I’m in a much better environment, I strapped up my old faithful flexes, threw on some gear, plugged in my beats, and hit the pavement.
It was right before the heat really started to hit so I was able to stay cool for the most part of the walk. The walk was peaceful. The weather was perfect. The manicured lawns were beautiful. I finally felt a sense of peace in my new neighborhood.
I think I must have walked for about an hour. After I picked up my momentum, I lost track of time with J. Cole’s 2014 Forest Hills Drive blasting in my ears. This is definitely something that I plan to implement in my mornings every other day of the week.
Breaking a sweat had me ready to tackle some things in the yard this weekend. Never mind that my back is killing me right now (I think I may eventually visit the doctor for my injury), I’m impressed with how much work we were able to get done.
I can finally see my yard, or at least get an idea of what it will look like and where I need to place things. Fall is quickly approaching and I believe that we’re right on target to get things in shape to enjoy fall evenings around the homemade fire pit (Thanks to Pinterest). And to also set up autumn decor.
I couldn’t do as much as I wanted to do this weekend because my back is still injured (lift with your knees people), but the good news is I was still able to scratch quite a few things off my list that I really needed to tackle like my office and the laundry — maybe mornings will go a little smoother. Even though I have a long way to go, slow progress is still progress.
Happy Sunday & here’s to an awesome upcoming week!
