citysage said...

Oooh--Hob nobs! They are so dangerously yummy! Now I'm totally drooling even though it's only 8 am. A cookie for breakfast is allowed, right?

down and out chic said...

i just had some leftover lasagna for lunch, it was pretty comforting.

Kotori said...

My comforts are a cup of hot tea and a good book, snuggling in bed with the kids, late night couch time with the hubby and a big chocolately dessert.

Rachel said...

Mmmmmm...these photos are so serene. Curling up on the couch with a good cup of tea is one of the top comforts on my list as well.

Karen said...

All of that white! *swoon*

You've Got Mail and Breakfast at Tiffany's are my go-to comfort movies. Also a warm cup of good, good coffee, mashed potatoes, and fresh flowers.

Hope you indulge in some of your comforts and have a good Monday :)

I really liked Howl's Moving Castle! I watched it mostly out of curiosity, but it was really wonderful!

Lovely images dear!! The clean white is so peaceful! :)

the gleam of rose tea said...

I think your favorite activities are the same as mine :)

●• Tiny Red said...

chocolate and pink milk! :)

great images, as usual!

TheDecoDetective said...

Argentine tango! It's totally different from what it looks like when it's on stage. It's all about closeness with another body and mind. It always helps when I'm down or stressed out...
At home: BF, chocolate, woolen socks even if it's not cold, and getting nice comments on my blog (like yours)!

Kellen Jacob said...

I enjoy curling up and looking through magazines. My comfort food wood definitely be spaghetti, but it would be better if were fruit. Oh yes, and curling up with my kiddos while they are asleep always puts me at ease.

paula said...

oops, the above is from me. My hubby does no sort of curling up:)

Beautiful post as always.

My comforts:
* the moment my husband walks in the door each night.
* each new word my daughter & son speak.
* tomato soup with grilled cheese sandwiches.
* seeing Flathead Lake with the Mission Mountains in the distance (Western Montana).
* hearing my mom's voice.

This is a lovely blog! I have also visited your Etsy store and I'm coveting some of the journals.

I wandered here from {this is glamorous}. I will be following you now. I look forward to more!

My comforts: Pride and Prejudice the movie, In Style magazine, Peet's latte, blogging, taking photographs, editing photographs, painting, singing, napping, journaling, and hugs from my lovely and loving sister!

Thank you for this post. It reminded me to be grateful for what I have...more than I've ever had in my life...despite severe illness.

Have a lovely and amazing day!
