Hi March.

Helloooo again! It's unfortunately been a little rough going around our household lately, something I couldn't have predicted when I originally posted that I would be MIA in February.  I'm still on the ledge about sharing every tid bit, nook and cranny of my life since this is the internet and all. We'll see. Suffice it to say that I'm seriously looking forward to a change in seasons, literally and metaphorically. Spring feels right around the corner. March 20th to be exact. And it always has a way of sprouting a little early in our home. All of the makings for a great seedling are ready to go except, that is, for the seeds themselves. I'm still waiting for those precious babies to arrive in the mail. Aaaany day now. Last year I had the foresight to take photographs of my garden patches so that I know what plants did best. I'm beyond excited to get my hands dirty again, and in case you were wondering, oh yes...there WILL be family flowering day once again! Less weed pulling, more flowering. Oddly enough, our house doesn't have a garden spicket so last year I had to hop over a fence to my neighbors, who were gracious enough to share their hose. This year, I'm hoping to find a miracle plumber who can hook us up. Is this totally boring? Okay, chatting about flowers and hoses is... well, yeah. Pretty boring. But you know what? When I was in college I took one of those career assessments. Don't worry, this story does have a small point. I took one of those assessments and along with "Homemaker," another one of my results? Florist. You heard it right! So yeah, I'm probably a little more obsessed with flowers than most 27 year olds. Some people have cooking. Some have fashion. I have flowers! Hopefully, someday over the rainbow, I can make Martha proud.

Zinnias, from last years garden.


Hello my little love bugs! Unfortunately I don't have much to report over here in our corner. Which is exactly my point. I've decided to take the rest of the month off to get more cuddle time in with hubby. I promise to be back in early March, with plenty of warmer weather (hopefully!) and full of fresh new inspiration. See you soon! xoxo

 Happy Valentine's Day!

What the future holds.

I was left craving more after the completion of Hunger Games, etc. when, to my great relief, a recommendation from my sister saved the day. She made mention of the Matched series. Again, a futuristic sight of what society could look like one day. How I've found myself wrapped up in teen sci-fi is beyond me, but I'm definitely enjoying the change in scenery from my library of chic lit. Have you read any good books lately? Recommendations welcome! I heard Divergent is also a great series, and yet ANOTHER futuristic take on life. I'm seeing a trend. ...And I like it!

Mail, the old fashioned way.

When I saw Casey's blog party invitation, I knew instantly I wanted to join in on the fun. Seriously, what a cute idea! Giving a random gift proved tricky but I had such a fun time picking out the little trinkets to send. The best part? I got a little surprise in my mailbox too! B from With Love from Michigan was such a sweetheart to send me some of her favorite teas with some, fun glittery nailpolish. 

Did you participate in on the fun?!
