Ah, January. The bleakest of the winter months… my old nemesis… we meet again.
I can deal with the cold and snow during December, because it feels charming while ramping up for Christmas. But now that Christmas has passed, and New Years is over, I just want to hunker down with Kindle and alternately read and sleep until spring gets here.
But, since I have things to do like, oh, parent my kid and work my job, I guess I’ll find a way to push through.
torture myself, gear up for warmer weather, I’ve become a springy pinning fool.
Want me to share? OK, I’ll share!!
I’ve developed this thing for lavender. The look, the smell, the color. I badly want to find a dough bowl to display some dried lavender in, but then I found this picture and now I also want to find a neat old box to plant live lavender in. To put on my harvest table that doesn’t exist on the back deck that isn’t built yet.
I’m also in the market for some great Adirondack chairs for my front deck that doesn’t exist yet. (Also? Love the name Adirondack. Maybe if we ever decide to have a brother for Junior… hmmm…) But then I saw this picture and decided it would be completely wonderful to park a couple chairs in the middle of a shady spot in our yard too.
And since I’ll need to look fabulous whilst sniffing my lavender and sitting in my Adirondacks, I should probably buy this dress.
And figure out how to make this bracelet.
Aaaaand, sip on some sangria. Because thats what fancy people drink. And I’m fancy.
Anyone else already have spring fever? Created a Pinterest board dedicated to spring? Who wants to come drink some sangria with me??
