cold mornings...

today i am grateful for...

another slow start to the day. i love cold weather for its laziness. any excuse to savor my mornings with coffee, warm socks, and pretty dried flowers.

i really don't mind having dried flowers in the apartment. i love that i don't have to keep changing the water. cotton, sea holly, billy buttons, and pussy willows are pretty dear in bottles stashed all over.

thick socks

my favorite pair of socks... well, more like stockings. they are comically big and thick as a sweater. these were a pretty funny find. no pun intended.

duck boots

and i'm also so happy i found these duck boots from j crew. i fell in love with the peanut and cafe au lait color combination. and the shearling inside was a huge bonus. maybe eddie and i will go for a walk around the park later.

***side note... i was this close to buying a pair of hip-hoppy timberland boots. was feeling like touchin' on my ATL roots. but my husband begged me not to.

dried flowers are the best for winter! i just arranged some little glasses and vases of dried flowers around my apt and now i won't have to change the water or have the weekly expense of new fresh flowers all winter!

You just have to go back and get those tims! lol You can wear them with overalls and a big sunhat this spring! Or to just hip-hop around the apartment.

i love dried flowers. my male roommate, however, does not see the appeal, so my bedroom is filled with 'em!

i enjoy your blog so much. i'm a senior majoring in social work & i just finished my final internship. i worked with inmates at a jail - truly rewarding. anyway, i had to co-lead an anger management group, and during my final session i discussed with them the concept of "gratitude." they were so receptive! (you were the inspiration for the lesson!) i made them all gratitude journals as parting gifts...now your concept of showing gratitude is present at an alabama jail :)
