Home again! We’re back from Maui. Flew in late tonight and I’m still on island time which is why I’m feeling pretty good sitting on this exact couch and writing this post after 1:30 am. When you read this I’ll most likely be a sleep deprived walking zombie working on my never ending to-do list that includes everything I put off last week plus unpacking, laundry, groceries, etc. The Monday after a vacation is always a treat isn’t it? But so worth it. It felt surreal to get away and take a little break from our routine after a year of being so homebound. None of us are ready to be back! I still haven’t shared a Maui tips post and I’m hoping to get to that done this spring/summer for those of you who have asked for it. It’s definitely one of our family’s favorite places to relax and spend time together and I know many of you who have been there love it as much as we do!
For now I’m sharing a few pics of the current state of my family room. I snapped these pics quick before our trip.. just a few simple changes in this space since last spring!

Time to welcome the sunshine! I love this time of year.
The main change is happening on my “too big to figure out how to style” mantel. It has a new look for spring! I ordered this gold arched metal framed mirror in October and it came in February. I put it up on my mantel in March and am finally sharing pictures in April.
I may drive fast but that’s pretty much where speed ends for me. :)
We have this same mirror in the large leaner size in black in our hallway and I’ve absolutely loved it. (I could only find night time cell pics of it.. I need to take some during the day!) This was one of those purchases I thought about for a long time before I pulled the trigger and now have no regrets!
I looked at a lot of different mirrors and art and other options for this fireplace but just kept coming back to this same gold mirror. Not uncommon for me to buy doubles of things I really love. Not news to any of you. :) I’m not quite ready to take down my brass lanterns I put up during the holidays. The flickering candles still come on automatically around 5 pm every night and give such a nice glow! I think I’ll leave them up all year. I added a basket on the right for some spring vibes. Keeping it simple because I have several items on my console table next to this fireplace.
This console table is looking a little french country to me but I’m not mad about it! Slightly more feminine for spring and summer. :)
I’ve had the sign for years from Home Goods but felt like I needed something next to it. I found this pretty print on-line and love it near the lilacs! A gold frame from Target to hold it for the win and now all feels right in the world!
Or at least on my console table. Baby steps. :)
A little spring tour to kick off our Monday! I hope you enjoyed it and I hope your week is off to a great start. If you’re joining me in my organizing challenge it’s paper week! I’ll be back soon to discuss all things paper organization. A favorite topic of mine!
Spring decorating and paper organization. Maybe it’s not so bad to be back home in my routine after all.
