Happy Friday, friends! Here are my 3 YAY moments of the week!

{one} Our road trip to Annapolis!


I will do a full post on my Annapolis favorites but this trip was a compilation of some serious YAY moments! My sister rode with us and it was such a blast spending time with her, my hubby, and our son, Karter. {She even put up with our “shake your sillies out” kid songs for the second year in a row! Such a trooper.} The entire trip in Annapolis was spent relaxing, boating, eating & drinking, catching up with family, & truly celebrating life. To my amazing family…thank you! You inspire me in so many ways. “TEAM AWESOME”

{two} Taking a vacation day to spend purely with my little man.


After we got home from Annapolis, I took a day off to spend with Karter! We stayed in our PJs until lunch. We ate pizza. We played hard at the park {TWICE}. As a full-time career woman, these full-on momma days are the best kind of vacation days! Spending quality time just playing with our son is something my husband and I feel so strongly about. Turning off the TV, putting our phones in another room, and just focusing on each other. To have a full day of play with my adventurous sweet boy made my momma heart smile!

{three} Decluttering our house.

The day after I took a vacation day to spend with Karter, I took a day to focus on our home. As I’ve gotten older, I’ve been focusing more on quality over quantity when it comes to all the STUFF in our life. {Clothes, shoes, home decor, etc.} I used to pick up a few things each week to “spruce” up our house or add to my wardrobe and over time, it’s just added complete clutter to our lives. I love to shop and that won’t change, but the amount of stuff that we hang on to, that will definitely change! With less time to clean {Well, that’s by choice. I’d rather play then clean!} I don’t want to have to move ten decorative pieces just to wipe down a table or shelf. It was time to declutter and donate items we just don’t use anymore to people who truly need them. And let me tell you, it feels oh-so good!

Tip of the week: Declutter to destress.

Use this in all areas of your life…it truly works!

Enjoy your weekend! Happy Friday friends!
