Over a year ago I wrote a "What I've Learned" post and it was fun to think about all the little (and big) things life had been teaching me. Here's round two! Tell me in the comments--what have you been learning, friends?
Dainty English china on rustic, wooden china cabinet shelves makes for the most gorgeous contrast.
"Merely...there are moments in a life when patience must become the spirit's sole companion." (I read this only last night in the book I'm reading and it really resonated. This is definitely something I'm learning.)
Husband's polo shirt = wife's tunic top. Easy tomboy look!
Bookshelves in the kitchen are a very good idea, and while I haven't tried it, a dresser would be lovely too. Putting "real" furniture in kitchens brings in a lot of warmth and personality.
North and South are relative terms. I mean, I moved up about five states! As far as I'm concerned I live in the North! (Thomas Jefferson would be horrified.)
The Little Free Library in our neighborhood is the cutest thing. It has a hedgehog knob on its door and we stop whenever we walk by on our evening walks and it's just so wholesome and great.
Being told by family members that visits to your home are "so relaxing" is the absolute highest compliment. (Thanks baby bro! It's always a pleasure for us too.)
Marriage in general and my husband specifically just keep getting better and better and better and better. And it all started out pretty wonderful so imagine how we're doing 2.75 years in. To say I'm thankful doesn't even begin to scratch the surface.
Ok, your turn! What have you learned?
