little things {january edition}

It's been another full week, but somehow I remembered to capture a few more moments on my camera phone.  I'm excited to join Lindsay's linkup, it's been too long :)  Over the past week, these are just some of the things that made me smile...I have so much to be grateful for!

a night at home with girl friends for a clothing swap ((more on this next week))

baking bread at home

pre-church coffee date with the mister

 lounging on the couch with the pooch

waking up to snow covered ground ((and watching the sun come up and shine on the snow))

time to craft a new bunting banner ((inspired by Danielle))

fun red nails ((NYC Big Apple Red)) and my mom's amethyst ring

...and finally the little things I've loved reading around blogland this week:
  • The latest addition to my thrift store wishlist is reusable napkins. We do have a few, but I love the ones Brooke found thrifting!
  • I learned that I'm terrified of Morphsuits, thanks to Leonora!
  • Thank you Savannah for inspiring me to rethink our dating habits with this creative idea for how to make them more fun. I'm thinking about how to make our version of this DIY date calendar.
  • Looking for some Valentine's DIY or recipe inspiration? Melanie is hosting a linkup and it's full of fun ideas to get ready for the LOVEly holiday ((yep, I am that cheesy))
  • Struggling to find some inspiration in the winter months? Read this post from Ashley: 5 Ways to Stay Inspired
