mid-week round-up

What have you been up to friends? On Saturday, our friends from Kentucky passed through on their way home from The Keys and we had a lovely time visiting with them. I love having visitors from further north to remind us that it IS a darn delight to eat outdoors in January. πŸ™‚ Also, loving my little Internet community who chimed in on my posts about decluttering and mornings. Makes me feel like we’re all in this life thing together and everyone is doing their best to figure it out! In that same vein, check out this post from Danie and this one from Jasmin. Have a great rest of your day, and here’s some more reading material…

  1. I’ve never eaten outside but that may have something to do with living in the North of England so don’t get a lot of nice weather. Also I think reds and pinks are most associated with February due to Valentines πŸ™‚

    And a “husband stitch?” OMG!!! I don’t even know what to say about that.

  5. Awww thanks for including me!!! I hope people like the post! I knew that I could not be the only one obsessed with RuPaul’s Drag Race! Oh and Kesha is amazing. That was the most heartfelt performance I saw in a long time.

  6. Thank you for the reminder to watch Kesha’s Grammy performance. I still haven’t watched it even though everyone has been talking about it!
