I loved this book. The sweet storyline had me hooked from the first chapter and it was full of great humor. All in all, it was a wonderful, heart-warming read.
This Seasonal Treat
Is there anything – anything– better than candy corn??? (The answer, folks, is no. Because there isn’t.)
This Little Head
As I hold a coffee cup in one hand and a story book in the other, he clings to sticky, half eaten pieces of candy corn. Big brother has run off to play, and for a few moments, we sit and read together beneath the shade of a big tree.
The morning after my birthday dinner celebration, Theo walked into the kitchen, went straight to the fridge, and pulled out a piece of leftover pizza. Without a word, he sat down beside me and began eating while I stared at him in awe and secretly snapped a few photos. I love cold pizza for breakfast. Breakfast is, as they say, the most important meal of the day, and there is no food better suited for this all important meal, than pizza. My heart did a little happy dance to see my four year old performing this sacred act like a seasoned pro.
One morning, Theo wasn’t feeling well and was reading quietly to himself. Oliver, needing to do what big brother does, went and got himself a chair, a blanket, and a book, and sat down beside him. *swoon*
My favorite brother, my favorite meal, at my favorite restaurant, on my favorite day — my birthday!
This New Dressing Table Item
Mike (and Theo) picked out this beautiful ring holder for me to use on my dressing table, and I absolutely love it. It’s the perfect addition.
Mums. The official flower of fall. And of September. And of my birthday. These beauties were a thoughtful gift from my brother and sister-in-law.
This candle not only makes it smell like fall, but it makes it feel like fall, too! I got this at Aldi for less than $5, and was pleased to see that it is a soy blend.
We bought Theo a backpack, as he started preschool this week. We are having so much fun with this!
My hubby knows me, and that means a lot. Is there anything more comforting and reassuring than being known by someone you love? He read my last “Things I Love Right Now” blog post, took note of my mentioning ponchos as “the perfect thing to wear when you’re pregnant,” and bought me one for my birthday. This gift has it all going for it: thoughtful, meaningful, and so cute! (And I stand by it as the perfect maternity look. So comfy!)
