things i'm thankful for (personal edition)

















































a new place
a new kitty (to be)
& a new start

also the things that have been getting me through this seemingly never-ending cold : cough syrup, my dog and her heating pad, baby's breath flowers, and hot baths.

here's to having a safe and healthy holiday xo

November mood

You guys, I kind of hate the month of November. Halloween is over, Christmas is too far away and though its great- my Thanksgiving plans are having dinner with my tiny family (just my parents and me). I made a mood board this morning to pull myself out of the November slumps and to get inspired to find things I love about this month. Then it occurred to me November is all about giving thanks (duh). I found a copy of 10,000 Things To Be Happy About at the thrift store yesterday and though its really cheesy - its inspired me to start documenting little things I appreciate day to day. And I guess this month is the perfect time for this exercise.


here's a visual list of things I love about this month
thigh high socks, tea, and working from bed

staying in on a rainy day


 
cozy meets witchy
wearing my hood up
exploring the city in the cold
keeping an open mind
reading in a bookstore with someone
watching old movies (this image is from Au Hasard Balthazar)
snuggling under a ton of blankets

getting the guts to go out and do stuff by myself

honoring Carl Sagan - Happy Birthday man
red and yellow leaves
girl friends
actually being in the mood to stay in and work
lattes "for here"
being shamelessly nostagalic
and the thrilling reassurance that Obama will be president for a 2nd term
