Scenes From The Weekend (Instagram Edition)
Hand-squeezed fresh grapefruit & clementine juice. Saturday morning dancing to the dizzyingly addictive Michael Bublé, Harry Connick Jr. & Matt White intertwined with conversations about goals and plans, life and dreams.
All my favorite groceries in the fridge, a surprise discovery of red & white cloth napkins marked down to .97 each at West Elm, and bottles in every room housing the first peek at Spring's blooms. Warm rainbow sun on my face and a cheerful painting from a budding three-year-old artist.
A Mignon Kitchen delivery and a prompt devouring of the contents. Toast made fun with a heart cookie cutter and a slathering of apricot preserves. Slow, leisurely breakfasts that melt into late afternoon lunches.
An unscheduled and entirely relaxing weekend made me cognizant of how gratifying that feels. January was an interesting month for a few reasons and I felt as if I was in a hard-to-shake fog for much of it. I think it's lifting now, and I can't describe how happy that makes me. I wish that for you, too.
