– jim rohn

to wear my classic funnel neck Burberry coat on those magical winter days
to sip PG Tips tea to keep myself warm
snow angels, staying warm and cozy under the covers, playing dress-up for holiday parties, and daydreaming of the endless possibilities that await the new year


on the top of my wish list:
Scalamandre wallpaper for the bathroom in our new place

what I am wishing for others:
health, happiness, and to send and receive more handwritten notes

my thanksgiving adventure:
i’ll be spending it in manhattan with my family and a slew of people who have become extended family over the years. (still deciding what dish to make!)

and what I am oh-so-thankful for:
my husband, and first cup of coffee each morning
