These pictures feel like ages ago, but the truth is they're barely a week old. Yesterday it was 70 degrees and beautiful (albeit windy), and even today the high is near 60. I know I'll be missing these days in just a few weeks when the humidity ramps up and makes us all shiny on the skin. Speaking of a beautiful Sunday - yesterday was the perfect day. I woke up feeling rested, spent time outside while Toby befriended our little neighbor girl (and played for ages!), enjoyed a cook out with family over at my parents' house, and posted up on the couch with a quilt, pillows, and a Martinelli's apple juice while I watched He's Just Not That Into You. I managed to sneak in an hour long snooze and capped off the evening with entirely too much good TV (Shameless, House of Lies, Girls). We also decided to give Downton Abbey a go. We watched the first episode and seem to like it thus far. I'm excited to see how it progresses though. Any of you watch it? (I'm sure that question will be met with a resounding yes! I'm always tardy to the party)
This dress was picked up at ModCloth's Cabin Fever sale sometime ago. This outfit was also originally worn on a day without snow, but my schedule doesn't always permit outfit photos (and by that I mean my hair doesn't always permit them... Clearly I have a pretty flexible schedule. That cowlick, though? Pretty stubborn.) Seeing as the weather surprised me, and it was obviously quite chilly, I opted for a peacoat and a new scarf, too. I didn't think I'd have the opportunity to wear this scarf this season since winter was awfully mild. I'm glad I was able to give it a go. Now just to work my way through the other half-dozen I acquired during the past several months. Funny how scarves were high on my list for Christmas and I received so many lovely ones, yet Mother Nature wants them stowed away 'til the next year.
Do you ever have those days where you just wake up feeling like Today is the day! or This week is going to be spectacular!? Today I have that feeling, and I'm really hoping to hold onto it. It's hard not to constantly say things like "Good things are on the horizon! Happiness is looming!" even though they're rather empty and oftentimes vague. I guess I just get these feelings and I'm hoping they're not total nonsense.
I wish every day could be like yesterday (sans the unforgiving wind). Today it's gloomy and rainy, but I hope that there are sunny days ahead. This girl has furniture to start building! Happy Monday, friends! Hope it's a good one for you!
