Sister Style: Exploring New Places

Emma of A Beautiful MessMetallic bagPurse and sunniesThumbs upLight blueLiving and working from a different city this month has me (and Trey) exploring lots of new places. New coffee shops, new restaurants, new beaches, and so on, and all along the way we are having lots of new experiences. Most of the time I am a total homebody, although I do try to explore new things as often as possible. As a creative small business owner I think keeping a mindset of life-long exploration is really important. You don’t want to pass over the next big idea just because it felt too new or weird to you at first. In general I think having an attitude of happy-to-explore-the-new is a good way to live life.

So I am living my best life this month. ?

Also, big thanks to my Instagram husband for snapping these pictures of me after we grabbed some (delicious!) coffee from Civil Coffee.

Take it away, sister!

I don’t have too much to say when it comes to exploring lately. We’ve stayed home a lot this season and, honestly, it’s been really great. We have a lot of travel planned later this spring and summer, and it’s been amazing to just chill at home for a bit. Since around the first of the year, I’ve been on a rampage to “finish” my house, and it’s the best feeling ever tying up project after project after project.

I set a bunch of relatively small goals for myself like catching up on getting photo books made, deep cleaning those parts of our house that still have hidden junk, and planning some outdoor landscaping projects for springtime.

It feels good to get so much done. I love traveling, but I also love being a homebody equally as much. Gotta have both.

 Counting down the days… and scrambling to get to everything on my to-do list before Christmas. I’m a “works well under-pressure” type of person, so deadlines are good. Christmas deadline: noted!
