Friday Favorites - Week 356

Happy Friday y'all!! Anyone else still enjoying their bare homes before pulling out a bit of lovely Valentine decor? I usually have our home decked out by now but have gone into full purge mode throughout our home and have been listing pretty much everything that isn't bolted down, for sale...fingers crossed it goes well! 

I've started watercoloring through a fantastic online course and have fallen in love with a new media! If you follow me on Instagram, then you've seen my progress thus far, if not, here's a little sneak peek.
