Aww...youre too sweet. :)
Yes! Let me know what you think. I bet chocolate chips would improve oatmeal too. :)

I love your haircut! It looks great. So glad to hear you'll have so much time together soon too. Thumbs up emoji!

Love that you're sharing your crafting techniques, Elise! I would love a journal to use as just that - a journal. I have so many little notebooks, all for a different specific purpose, but I'd love to just write for the sake of writing again.

Beautiful, Elise. That piece about déjà vu? Made my eyes tear up, since there's something about the feeling of déjà vu that brings back worlds of memories, and that feeling of being the same person always, just aged. Happy birthday, friend.

Of course! Im planning to share a few more budgeting posts in the coming weeks, like budgeting tools I use (I use Mint for tracking everything), and some more details on different categories. Good stuff!
Loved Ashlee's piece about writing. I feel like that theme is going around the internet quite a lot lately...we get used to writing for more people, or worry so much about what people think, that we don't write as honestly as we could. Sometimes I think that as much as my blog has boundaries, a memoir would be an incredible place to write the real deal...who knows? Happy celebrating!

Aw, thank you! :)
Thanks, Emily! Its a wonderful spot, and well be sure to stop at Gelato Fiasco on our next visit. Yum!
Thanks Lauren! Glad to hear others go with the basic beans. And I'll keep you posted on next steps and such!
Happy new year, Myriam! And thanks for your sweet words. Im all about simple recipes. :)
I love reading your blog because while I'm big on goals and lists, we do things differently. I find that I do well with daily to do lists, but I get bogged down by long term ones, and don't keep up. But I find what you write to be so interesting - I love learning other people's habits and goal-setting tools. So cool.

I've been following you all for a few years, and love seeing the recipes and photos the most. I love reading about your business and lives, as others have commented. And Elsie, I'd love to read more posts from you. Wishing you a happy new year full of peace, health, and goodness!
Happy New Year, Elise! Looking forward to seeing all of the new projects in 2015.

Yes yes! I agree. Love the clean layout, but if I was new to your blog I'd probably want to see a photo of you in the sidebar straight away. Not necessary, just a thought. I'm the same way with getting things done! Love it.

Thanks! I'm going to be making the blog more focused, and while I imagine it'll take time for the ideas to be fully fleshed out, I cannot wait.

Yes to stripes and jeans (and flannel and cordoroys). :) I love hearing from others who dislike shopping. Im so with you.
Thanks Susan! Thats so sweet of you to write. So glad to hear youre knitting with scraps too. And thanks for being a loyal reader all these years. :) lisa valinsky blog | instagram | pinterest | email
Thanks for your feedback, Rachel! It's super helpful. And yes, we have to enjoy each moment as it will surely fly by.
I've been eyeing this project since I first saw sneak peaks. I'm curious - has your home or apartments ever been featured on design sites or something like that? That'd be fun to check out, and I love how much DIY you do.
