Winter Pick-Me-Up

This past week has probably been one of my favorites in awhile.  First, because it was my birthday yesterday and second, because our addition is finally complete!  They finished up laying carpet, doing some odds and ends, and cleaning and we are going to slowly start moving things over to our new space. It is the absolute BEST birthday present!

Today I'm sharing a few things that made my week a bit extra special, although getting the addition done is at the top of my list.

First up is this book, All the Pretty Things by Edie Wadsworth.  It is a memoir and I just can't put it down.  It's the story of a woman (Edie) growing up incredibly poor in the Appalachian south and climbing her way out of poverty to be a doctor, but never feels whole until she is able to really find her eternal Father.  It is heartbreaking, yet full of grace and redemption and love.  If you're a woman and love memoirs, I highly recommend this book.

Who has vibrant orange lilies in January?  I do!  My sweet in-laws brought these over when we had dinner this week for my birthday and I was so happy to see some fresh flowers.  We haven't had them in our home in awhile and it's amazing what some real, cut, bright beautiful flowers can do for my mood when it's cold and dreary outside.  They are sitting atop my counter beaming with beauty.  If you need a pick-me-up...boost your countertop and your mood with some fresh blooms, even in the middle of winter.

In my post about 2017 I talked about my quiet mornings.  I have been sipping decaf coffee and hot cocoa out of this mug all week and I'm pretty sure it makes it taste better.  A pretty mug always helps and this one from a special friend makes it even sweeter.  

This Wax Buffalo peppermint candle has been keeping my kitchen smelling yummy and fresh for the past few weeks.  It is subtle and perfect for someone who loves peppermint as much as I do.  As far as I know, they are sold out, but check her site soon for more delicious scents for winter.

Today I am spending the day getting pampered a bit with some spa time my adorable husband gifted me and then we are off for a date tonight to celebrate my birthday.  My mom is here and I am so looking forward to some time with my man.  Hope you all have a Sunny Saturday!
