“Peace begins with a smile…”
Winter in the Windy City is definitely making me smile—yes, you read that correctly—this particular season in this particular year has been, well, amazing! Global warming—the end of the world—I’m not sure what to make of it, but temperatures edging towards 60, in these parts anyway, are making everyone smile.
Other things making me smile right now:
Enjoying the balmy temps on a walk with my dear friend Nikki and my sweet Bella.
A day in the city—
that drifts into a night in the city.
A gorgeous new pair of shoes.
The collective cool captured in this black and white short over at the Sartorialist.
This beautiful tablescape I spotted at Bright.Bazaar.
The perfect pen for a girl who still loves to do things the old fashioned way.
My Vintage photograph collection.
My in-laws, Angie and Jim, on their honeymoon, circa 1957.
And Signs from above.
As I walked along the back roads near my home recently, the clouds hanging dark and heavy in the sky,
I called on my mother to give me a sign that she was around. Suddenly the dark clouds parted and gave way to the brilliantly illuminated blue skies above. I smiled, remembering that my mother always did know how to make an entrance.
Wishing all a wonderful weekend! Hope you find countless reasons to smile :)
