What I'm Loving
Baby girl, you are such a joy. A marvel. Happy 7 months (tomorrow)!
I want to start a new series for the new year, because, well, that's what we do at the start of a new year, but, also because I'm feeling very full right now. Full of joy. Full of gratitude. Full of love. Yup. I'm a big ball of ooey-gooey-luv!
So, the new series is What I'm Loving
+ I love the way William loves on his sister, from his kisses goodnight (sloppy) and his speed at retrieving her toys (quick), it's a wonder. And I keep thinking, maybe, just maybe, he will be that older brother I always wanted!
+ I love these winter days. I love the chill, I love the cold, I love the briskness of it all. Trust me, in these parts, I get a lot of weird looks when I go out in just a sweeter. But, that's how I roll.
+ I love changing-up my inspiration boards. I love collecting new postcards, new mini-prints, new tags, that make my creative heart sing. If you ever wanted a Pen Pal, I'm your girl!
+ I love Zoloft. Ha. I really didn't think I would write that. *gasp* But, this is the first winter I've actually enjoyed in almost a decade. Yes, I suffer from SAD, but it's more than that. My depression would have me skimming the bottom more times than I care to remember. I needed a boost this fall. I needed something to level me out, just a little, so I could enjoy the little bits of life. Maybe that's a sad thing to write. Maybe.
+ I love surrounding myself with lush, leafy, green things. Especially in the winter. Spiky plants, big-leaf-weepy things, and forced paper whites. I'm still rather amazed half of them are alive.
+ I love swapping recipes. Especially with cute, foodie, barristas. Butternut squash soup, tomato cobbler, galettes, and our hatred of celery!
What I'm loving!
