    Wise Words on Anxiety

    This week, my wonderful aunt sent my sister and I this resource, Psychological First Aid for Frontline Health Care Providers. I decided to take a quick peek, even though I didn’t really think I needed it. After all, I was “fine”! Holy man was I wrong. I did not realize how much I needed to go through the workbook – I suddenly felt understood and refreshed. The above resource helped me realize how important it is to prioritize my mental health. In addition to seeking out resources, I need to continue to exercise, eat well, and maintain meaningful relationships by reaching out to others. But the biggest thing of all…

    Home Ownership – the Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    We bought our house almost 3 years ago and have absolutely loved making it our home. However, it hasn’t been without some surprises and “adulting” reality checks. Overall, we have loved living together and having a space to make our own. Here is what has surprised me most about home ownership so far – the good, the bad and the ugly! I also attached some photos of our house at the moment if you would like to see – I always love home tours of other peoples houses. We still have a few projects on the go and its not perfect, but it’s ours. I figured it would be fun…

    The Joy of Old Friends

    With quarantine keeping us safe at home, I must say one of the best things to come out of it for me has been getting to chat more often to old friends.

The pandemic has taught me the joy that can come with taking life a bit slower. I don’t have to always be so scheduled and busy. Having the time to Facetime and catch up has been the best. It has also made me realize that after this is all over, it is something I…

    A Quarantine Outfit Story – The Smash + Tess Romper

    A PSA (Public Spencer Announcement) if you are not already aware… Smash + Tess rompers are seriously a game changer! I ordered my first S+T Romper at Christmas during their Black Friday sale.

Let me tell you, these 100% win as my best purchases of 2020 so far. Present Pandemic Spencer is currently thanking Past Spencer for the most timely purchase I have ever made. 2020 may forever be known as the year of loungewear. I have…

    The Endy Mattress

    We weren’t looking for a new mattress, I thought ours was perfectly fine. The thought of mattress shopping was not high up on my “that sounds fun” list. But then my husbands parents asked us to pick out a mattress we liked for their guest bedroom since it would be us sleeping there the majority of the time. And so began the hunt for 1 mattress that ended with 3 purchased – one for their guest bedroom, one for us, and my sister-in-law even got in on the deal. After browsing and researching we found the Endy and didn’t look back! Here is some info on why we chose the…
