Friday Favorites

These weeks favorites are all from Amazon. I have a love/hate relationship with Amazon. I love it because you can click, purchase and forget about it and I hate it because you can click, purchase and forget about it 😬

Holiday Serving Platters

My husband and I love hosting holiday parties. Christmas Eve has become a tradition since we moved in to our house. Typically we like to have some catered food but mostly appetizers and finger foods. Presentation of these can be difficult especially if you’re working with limited space. I love that these serving platers have different levels and are interchangeable to maximize space. While holiday parties may be a thing of the past this year (thanks COVID) these are all classic styles and can be used over and over again, whether it’s wine night with your girlfriends or a summer barbecue, you’ll definitely get a lot of use out of them. My favorites on this list are the alligator cheese knives, a little pop of whimsy and fun, something a little unexpected and the two tier gold and marble server from CB2. I was given this server as a Christmas gift last year and it’s amazing. Very sturdy and absolutely stunning.

When it comes to fall/holiday decor are you a jack-o-lantern, ghost and skeletons type or more of a pumpkins, leaves and some wheat grass type? My husband and I love to decorate for the holidays but we are definitely more pumpkins, leaves and wheat grass kind of people. Neutral decor that can last until the Christmas decorations go up. I found all of these on Amazon and they can last you from early fall through Thanksgiving. I don’t know about you but our Christmas decorations go up Thanksgiving weekend 😬

Welcome to my first blog post

Welcome, I am excited that you have stopped by and I hope that enjoy the blog. If you’ve read the About section you know a little about me already and if you haven’t, Hi! I’m Melissa! I am a married, 30-something mom of two. I work full time as a Dental Hygienist and I love what I do but have recently wanted “more” specifically creatively. My husband and I discussed me going back to school but with two kids and a husband that works 60 miles away it did not really seem feasible. After some reflection on things that I enjoy doing I decided to start this blog. I’m hoping that it will motivate myself and others to be proactive in our wants and desires whether it’s physical health, mental heath or just exploring things that you enjoy doing! My goal is to provide inspiration for lifestyle (home decor, family outings, beauty), wellness – both physical and mental, and style.

Thanks for stopping by. Feel free to reach out in the comments, connect to me via email, check out my Instagram or visit my Pinterest boards.

I’m excited to see where this new venture will take me and I’m thankful for your support.
