I've been a little down in the dumps lately, and gosh I hate that feeling. I think a large part of it is the suffocating state of my apartment, and that Matt and I are sort of 'on hold' in a way until this whole house thing gets ironed out. We were really hoping to close on January 31st, which would been ONLY 31 days late, but it's Wednesday, so far we have no news on that front.
I decided to take a long hard (not really THAT long or hard) look at my life and try to focus a little more on the good things, my favorite things, if you will.
Reading, I know I have said that before, but I really love books.
I love the Polish dishes that my in-laws give to me every Christmas. This one is an oil and vinegar set, hopefully some day I will have somewhere to display them. Something like...I don't know...a house.
These little bamboo plants. Actually, they aren't bamboo, they are a variety of water lily, but the important thing is that I have not killed them. Yet. I have had them in for almost a year, and for someone whose family calls 'the black thumb', that is a HUGE accomplishment.
I love they way my non-dairy creamer swirls in my coffee in the morning. It's so fluid(duh) and lovely.
I love my Burt's Bees lip balm. It is one of three lip balms that are usually on my nightstand. My lips get very dry over night, it is not unusual for me to wake up with a split lip, almost as if I had been cage-fighting in my sleep.
This is the only thing still hanging on the walls in our apartment. I love the first picture in this series so much, Matt has such an intense look on his face and I can tell my the curve of my cheek that I am laughing.
And lastly, I love the little notes Matt leaves around the apartment for me.
Thanks for letting me share some of my favorite things with you all again! I feel like I can breathe again!
