How was everyone’s Father’s Day yesterday?! Maxi has been getting up *extra* early lately {like 5:30!! yikes!} so we snuck out of the house, grabbed Paul donuts and then got his favorite Starbucks drink. We came back home and let him sleep in a little and then gave him his breakfast and gifts. While he was opening his gifts, Maxi dug into his donut bag. Paul and I didn’t even notice because we were focusing on his cards. I turned my head and theMaxi had a donut hole in one hand and a blueberry donut in another. She had proudly taken a bite of both. ha! A girl after my own heart.

Today we should be finishing our master bedroom, as our drapes will be installed. I can’t wait to photograph the room and share it with you all. I think it’s our favorite room in the home because it feels so cozy to me. I’ll be sure to share some looks at it on insta stories first. 🙂

I linked up my most recent looks on Instagram in case you missed them or don’t use the LTK app to browse items. Hope you enjoy!
