hello, lovelies!

im here again. sorry for the hiatus; haven't had a moment to sit down and breathe. while im laying low at home feeling under the weather, still very full from stuffing my face this past holiday weekend, thought i would disclose all things making my happy and thankful right now. and feeling festive- here comes December!

1. my cozy bedroom- whether it is a mess or perfectly tidy, i love crawling in with my full and heavy down comforter, soft sheets with a candle and book. (wish it only looked like this) ;) or waking up so warm and relaxed from a cat nap or that perfect night sleep.

2. snowy travels.

3. jewels and trinkets

4. delicious candles- especially these from anthropologie.

5. holiday reds and holiday spirit.

6. books, books, and more books. im running out of room and my list/collection keeps growing...

7. love.

8. soy lattes and sequins.

9. memories (and day dreaming) of paris

what's making you happy right now?
happy holidays, my dears.

dirty water.

Dirty water kills more people than all forms of violence combined.
That is an insane stat!

From Portland to Peonies posted about this incredible charity to help distribute clean water to those in need: a project called Well Done. It benefits Charity: Water, an organization that is trying to provide clean drinking water to every human on the planet. A water well costs $5,000 and with $4,00 already raised, we need to raise the remaining $1,000.

Take time today to donate a few dollars... $1, $5, $10, whatever. Give up that venti vanilla no foam Starbucks latte, or that pack of gum, or that new lip gloss. A little goes a long way.
