It is infinitely more difficult to wake up on the right side of the bed when it is dismal and raining outside. I’m not exactly what you would call a morning person (or, for that matter, a night person, given my proclivity to fall asleep at 9:45 most nights) as it is, but I find it exceptionally hard to rally or even peel the covers off of me when what’s outside is gloomier than the prospect of leaving my toasty bed. Whine whine whine!
To apologize to you lovely, fabulous ladies for my debby-downer mood today, I have 2 Like a Picture posts to share with you. I deviated from what I’ve done so far and used pictures that weren’t of soft-focus women from the chin down. I think I enjoy using those sort of pictures more (and I have plenty in my reserve pile I can use in the coming weeks), but it was interesting to work with non-human subjects; the process was similar but a lot more literal.
I haven’t forgotten about my offer to take your submissions and use them for this series, but I think I’m going to hold off until after I get back from Europe. Between my endless and compulsive planning and packing, and the organizing I’m doing behind the scenes for the week of guest-posters, I think it would be better to wait.
Can you imagine if that was your front stoop? Either door would work for me. I love that both the black and the pink pop even more because of what they’re next to. Talk about complementary colors. And before we get too far, both blankets are from West Elm, because while I promised not to use another one from Lands Downunder, I made no such assertions for West Elm. On a related note: it is very difficult to find decent throw blankets in multiple colors and textures online. Inevitably I end up sorting through fleece blankets with college football team logos on them.
Don’t you just want to know what they’re drinking? It looks like lingonberry juice to me, watered down. What do you think? Yes, I didn’t have to look too far to find that West Elm blanket, but it matches whatever in is their glasses perfectly.
Alright kiddos, how is everyone doing so far this week? We’re all hanging in? It’s almost Friday!
