Life is such beautiful madness. I have somehow, by a divine miracle and the grace of a dear friend’s scheduling power, received a day of rest and relaxation and finally found time to devote to blogging.
On the first day of the new year I found a journal that I had never even cracked open and began writing in it every night before bed. That has since slowly diminished to nothing more than pretty book that moves from place to place, the pages still bare. Writing is something that I truly love to do, both for myself as an outlet, a way to capture moments and keep them easily accessible, and as a way to share thoughts with others. I would like to resume writing, and find a way to incorporate it into my every day routine so as to never neglect it again. Fellow writers, any suggestions or thoughts?
Not only is today Super Bowl Sunday but it was also a big day for a little groundhog. Who, sadly, saw his shadow and cursed us all with another six weeks of winter. I don’t know about y’all but I am sick of cold hands, cloudy skies, and having to cover the beautiful legs God so mercifully blessed me with. So, in my wallowing, despair, and longing for sunshine and short shorts I present you with a collection of some essentials for the remainder of the cold, dreary days, as well as a few items that are purely feel good pieces to help you out of your winter blues rut. Enjoy beauties.
