{monday's mantra}

Oh goodness, what a weekend! We had Robert's little brother over for the past three days, and while we had a great time, I am so exhausted it's ridiculous. As I type this, both Robert and Olive are dead asleep on the couch next to me, and I have a feeling I won't be far behind.

Before I pass out, however, I wanted to stop by to share my mantra this week. I'm feeling a little overwhelmed with all the busyness that is life right now, and I have this strange desire to go off and start over in some small cottage in a little town, with few belongings and just my family. Do you ever feel nostalgic for the simplicity of life like that? Obviously that won't happen, but I can at least live a little more simply this week, and see if that helps.
This is definitely a reminder I need right now, especially whenever I get the desire to go shopping or overthink something. I really just need to breathe, and remember that life really doesn't need to be so complicated.

I've made this week's mantra into both a desktop and iPhone wallpaper for you as well, which you can download below.

Oh girl, I am feeling like that right now. Surrounded by textbooks and papers, with a messy dorm room and never having any time for myself - I'm dreaming about simple summer days of iced drinks and laying in the grass with a good book for hours on end. :)
