Hi friends! I slowly continue to work my way around our home and add little touches to each room. Since we moved in, about three years ago, I’ve done a little something in almost every room at this point. But somewhat recently, I turned my attention to a room that hasn’t gotten much love and ironically it’s one I spend quite a lot of time in — my home office. We got a new storage cabinet to have a nice, functional way to stay organized. But what I'm excited to share today is the affordable custom frame solution for a vintage butterfly print that I got at a local thrift store, and is a non-traditional size (20" x 27.5").
Let's talk about boundaries. I've heard and seen the topic of setting work boundaries come up a lot in the past few years. It's funny to think about when I entered the workforce, how the thought of "setting boundaries" was almost unheard of. Was it because fewer people were glued to their phones and taking work home with them? Was it because we know better now? Maybe it is a combination of these factors. What I do know is that somewhere in between getting married, going through a pandemic and having a child, setting work boundaries became not just something to strive for, but a necessity. I brought up a real example of my coworker's work boundary (see the email signature below) on Instagram recently, and it sparked A LOT of comments from you all. So, today I am sharing those and more about my journey with work boundaries.
"OMG! You're so lucky!" That's what most people say immediately after I tell them I work from home. A little over a year ago, I started my own business and began working from home, four out of five days a week. Since then, it's been quite the ride, but it's honestly not something I talk about a lot. So, today I want to share the pros and cons of working from home.
