It is the first 7 Links to Love of 2016!! It is almost April and I, like many, had made a list of resolutions and things I wanted to do(or not do) to make this year a positive one. I’m sticking to it! It’s officially spring and I will continue to stay motivated!
– My Erin Condren Planner – I had been wanting to purchase this specific planner since last year, but I just kept putting it off. I love to make lists and plan things out. It brings me peace and tranquility. I got mine in February! I am not an organized person at all and I’m really hoping that planning out my schedules or activities will not only help me manage my time better, but also keep the chaos, that can be our daily routine, to a minimum. I’ve been pretty hard on myself because I haven’t been posting as much as I should on here, and actually making a schedule for the blog will help keep the momentum going. (Side Note: I don’t know if anyone else does this, but I use my planner as a “vision board”- I schedule in important things I’d like to achieve this year! I’m just keeping the POSTIVE VIBES going.)
– YOUTUBE LOVE– If you haven’t been living under a rock you’ve heard of Casey Neistat. The man has quickly become a YouTube sensation and legend. I started watching his daily vlogs as quickly as he began making them. Everyone that is a Casey fan has different reasons on why they love the talented film-maker and family man. I became fascinated with him after watching the short film he made about the relationship he has with his son ( shown above). He just has this unique way of putting things into perspective. He is a driven person and I admire that so much. He isn’t perfect, not at all, as a matter of fact there are a few things that we don’t agree on. I relate to him so much because, I too, was a young mom and at one point had no idea what my future would bring. Another reason is he reminds me A LOT of my younger brother, both determined and unstoppable. I watch the vlogs every single day, squeezing in a quick video even on my break at work.

-oh….and this is because I’m just counting down the days, people….counting down the days! Watermelon Hacks
-The hubs got me the best valentine’s Day gift ever. A brand new Mac desktop, with a desk , and adorable chair. He’s just awesome…plain and simple! The desk is currently in my living room but I’m planning on moving it into our bedroom. I don’t want it in our family/living area. I was browsing on Pinterest for chalkboard wall ideas for our kitchen and I stumbled upon this great Two person desk ! This is what I want, something both of us can share!
-MUSIC LOVE: I am ecstatic about attending Firefly Music Festival for the 3rd time this year. I can’t wait to see some of my favorite bands.
