This past weekend, with the exception of a couple of baseball games, we had nothing scheduled. I forgot how lovely and relaxing it is to wake up to a leisure breakfast of coffee and pancakes, take a long, hot shower (and actually have time to blow dry my hair), enjoy a late night dinner for two with my husband, and catch up on my favorite reality shows. I realize every weekend cannot be a replica of this one but it does put things into perspective and forces me to take a step back and appreciate the small things...and quite literally, smell the roses.
These roses were $2.99 at the grocery store. Five days later and they still look fresh.
milk frother has been working overtime these days.
I love Bobbi Brown's rich chocolate eye palette for fall.
crostini is a must have.
My two year old son spotted this butterfly and promptly requested that I take a photo.
My husband took this photo while we were away a few weeks ago. It was one of those perfect days.
