Updating My Living Space

I have had the same living space design for more years than I care to admit. My biggest reason was–why change what is just fine? My living room was full of furniture that was functional, well-kept, and pleasing but something happened inside me at the beginning of this year. I don’t know if it was the fact that I now spend so much time at home because of the shift that the pandemic brought or if something inside of me is just ready for a change. Either way, it has been my mission to update the space.

I have been working on it casually since January. Starting first with a new couch, a new rearrangement of furniture and now it is morphing into older furniture pieces leaving and new ones coming in. So below are 5 new features I have been looking at while I update my living space decor.


Road Trip Snacks

Here we are . . .road trip season. I love my road trips and I used to use it as a time to eat whatever junk food I wanted to eat. As I have gotten older, I have realized that I just don’t enjoy feeling sick from the processed food that you can buy at convenience stores. I am grateful for the upgrades that a lot of these establishments have made on having healthier options but honestly, the best thing is just to do a little prepping and bring your own food along for the ride.

So here are my top 5 items to bring along on a road trip.

I bring along this garlic spread and cut-up veggies to dip such as peppers, cucumbers, celery, carrots, etc.
I love that I can have a fun meat snack without the sugar. This satisfies my cravings and feels like I just picked up convenience store food.
Nuts are great to have on hand and I love these Salt & Vinegar ones
I love these along with fresh fruit like apples and oranges
I have shared this recipe before but if you cut them up into 2-bites-worth sizes; they are a great treat!
