What a great week!

Though a lot of new exciting things have been happening around here, like the pre-release of the Wish I Knew ebook and the Joss & Main Curator’s Collection (which is now live!), I had one of the greatest moments yesterday.

Each evening, Mr. Lively and I are in the habit of asking about each other’s day.

And for one of the first times that I can remember, I didn’t spend time reflecting on what had actually happened during the day in order answer.

I simply responded from the positive mood I was in in that moment. It was a “good day” because I was in a good place!

Though that may seem simple for some, it’s kinda a breakthrough for me. I’ve known that is the way to be, but have sometimes struggled to “get there.”

But hey, one day at a time, right?

This Memorial Day weekend we are ducking out of town and going camping in Wisconsin with our buddies.

We’ll also be bringing Franklin for the first time. We’re taking bids on whether he’ll return a white or brown pup.

Either way, we think he looks pretty dashing in his camping gear.


Thank you so much for reading and have a great Memorial Day weekend!

  1. So glad to hear you’re having a great week! About camping…the dirtier Franklin gets, the more fun he’s had. 🙂

    Hi Jess!

    I had to pop on your site to say hello and congrats! I opened my Joss & Main app the other morning to see what went on sale and I saw an old high school buddy!–except we’re not old…although we are getting there :-/ 🙂

    My husband and I just bought our first home and I’m love scouring blogs for decorating inspiration. I’ve only bought accessories and little things off Joss and Main. I’m afraid to get a piece of furniture from a website that has one photo/angle of piece I’m looking to possibly throw several hundred dollars at…Have you ever bought anything “big” off the site? Anyways, I’ve just spent the last I-don’t-want-to-admit-how-long minutes/hours looking and drooling over your blog and apartment. Love love!

    I’m actually going to be in Chicago June 27-30th for my brother-in-law’s wedding. We are staying at the West on North Dearborn. I have no idea how close that is to you but I’d love to grab a coffee or something if you want!? My email is kristin.c.dunn@gmail.com. Have fun camping with that campin’ cutie!

    1. Hey there, lady! It’s great to hear from you. Too funny that you found me on the J&M email!

      I will be around the weekend that you are in Chicago- let’s text to get a coffee chat set!

    Your dog is adorable, if he’s anything like my mums dogs (she has 6!!) he’ll return from the trip very brown Haha. Glad you had such a good day, hopefully there will be many more to come 🙂
