You Are Beautiful Yard Sign

This yard sign makes me wish I had a yard.

Reasons To Be Cheerful

David Byrne started a magazine called Reasons To Be Cheerful in which he and his team tell stories that reveal that there are, in fact, a surprising number of reasons to feel cheerful. Many of these reasons come in the form of smart, proven, replicable solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. Reasons to be Cheerful is here to tell you about some of them. Through sharp reporting, their stories balance a sense of healthy optimism with journalistic rigor, and find cause for hope. It is part magazine, part therapy session, part blueprint for a better world.

I love EVERYTHING about this.

I thought I had a lot of plants until I saw this house tour of Summer Rayne Oakes. I thoroughly enjoy what she shares on Instagram and I just ordered her book How To Make A Plant Love You.
