Hey girl, hey! If you follow me on snapchat [username: KateyMcFarlan], you know that for the past few weeks I’ve been on a declutter kick.

Who am I kidding? I’ve been decluttering since middle school, but you get what I’m saying. 

I’m a maximist that wants to be a minimalist deep down or vice versa. Who knows. But somehow I’m always accumulating [I like pretty things. Oops.] and always purging. And yet I LOVE to give gifts. Tell me it’s someones birthday and I’m running to Target to round up the cutest birthday card and wrapping paper because chances are I bought their gift three months ago. I get so excited to make something perfect for someone and yet I know I’m contributing to their clutter. haha. So I’ve been trying to make a more conscientious effort to give Paul and my family gifts that can be used as opposed to looked at.

Enter, baked goods.

I love a Saturday morning donut run for my fiancé or finding gluten free goodies for my mom, and I wore this dress with the easiest fall flats the other day doing just that. And when I say these flats are easy, I mean these might be the most comfortable flats I’ve ever worn. I could marathon Disney World six times over and I’d still feel comfortable.

What are your favorite gifts to give?!

  4. Gift giving is one of my favorite things to do! I love making people feel like someone is thinking about them, especially for no reason!

    …..And now I’m breaking my no sugar rule for a cupcake. Whoops?

  8. Great idea! And so sweet that you still personalize it be it gluten free or whatever! I especially love giving candles to my mother-in-law, we both share that passion, it’s fun! 🙂
