Happy Sunday Morning Coffee! This is my favorite post to write, as I share a little about myself and a bit more about my favorite things.
Sunday mornings are the best. There’s no rush to get anywhere, the house is quiet, and you can relax with your morning coffee and catch up on your favorite things to read. Today I am sharing some thoughts, and, I’d love to know what you think.

Just remember, this is a place to share, learn, explain, dream, and have fun.
About Me and Sunday Morning Coffee
OK, this week I am going to be brutally honest and bare my soul to you. I am struggling to manage my time right now. What used to be easy, like stopping to run two or three errands on the way home, now seems like way too much. So many people. So many cars on the road to be aware of. It’s just so much of everything.
Having a weekend full of plans leaves me feeling a bit exhausted before the weekend even begins. I am struggling to balance the life I have gotten used to basically staying at home the past two years, with just my family, to the need to get back out into the world and do things.
Is it just me? Are any of you feeling the same way?
I truly believe that this feeling is a symptom of post-pandemic. It seems to be a common feeling, regardless of age. I think that two years of doing, well, a lot of nothing, is the culprit.
This feeling is not overwhelming my life or creating anxiety. It’s just that I’ve noticed that I make decisions differently now. I choose carefully what I am willing to add to my calendar. I don’t feel the need to pack it all in and FOMO is non-existent. So that is a positive!
New is always uncomfortable. Perhaps two years of staying mostly at home have cured me from doing all of the things, all of the time. I think what I am feeling is not a struggle, but an acceptance of contentedness.
Yep, let’s go with that. I would love to know how you feel about this subject!
Around the House
We have been very content hanging around the house. But this weekend we took a trip to the Bay Area to spend some time with my son Andrew, and his wife Charlotte.
It was so much fun! Of course, we will be home early on Sunday morning.
And, as I mentioned, I love spending time at home. And with family.
I am and always have been a huge fan of Pottery Barn. Many of the furniture pieces in our home are from Pottery Barn. Our dining room table and chairs are from Pottery Barn. The sectional and swivel chair in our family room, are also Pottery Barn from twenty years ago!
New at Pottery Barn
I love to peruse the Pottery Barn catalogs and they have a new collaboration with one of my favorite influencers, Julia Berolzheimer (formerly Gal Meets Glam, now Julia Berholzheimer). The Julia Berolzheimer collaboration with Pottery Barn is simply stunning. There are so many pieces I want to have in our home, like this potting bench or this two-tier scalloped etagere have such incredible detail. I love the sophisticated simplicity.
You all know how I love colored glass, look at this gorgeous recycled glassware collection. The entire collection is worth checking out. Garden, bedding, tableware, oh there are so many incredible items at all different price points. Swooning!

This past week, we were busy getting the house refreshed for the summer season. I chose two colors, sage green and tan, and added them to every room in our house. I am test driving these colors for the beach house, and I have to say, I think they are winners. What did you think?
