I love these creatures. Their snarly, drool covered faces make me laugh and their stocky legs delight my heart. Until I can afford one, I will spend time categorizing their pictures on my Bulldog Pinterest board, collect clothes with bulldogs on them, and keep space for the delightful animals on my bucket list. This is my friend’s dog Zelda.
2. Real Simple Magazine
There is nothing like a relaxing afternoon where I can browse through a copy of Real Simple Magazine. The organized layout, wonderful suggestions, and delicious recipes seem to embrace me saying, “Welcome to Womanhood.”
3. Blue Skies on Sunny Afternoons
Spring is here and the Colorado blue skies are saturated with warmth and promise of growth. I’ve love basking in the sun and staring up at the cloudless sky as a way to refuel and refresh on the weekends.
4. Coffee Breaks and Essie Nail Polish
This year, my New Year’s Resolutions were to bake more biscotti, and paint my nails more often. Very easy, achievable goals that make me feel pretty and get my creative kitchen juices flowing. Here is a chocolate chip espresso biscotti that I made on my own. Plus, I love coffee any time of day. Drip coffee, vanilla lattes, French Press. I’ll take its comfort any chance that I can.
5. Alice in Wonderland
You are never too old to engage with what what brings you joy. The characters and story of Alice in Wonderland have always been my favorite. I’m rereading the book, and continue to find creative interpretations of the artwork and story. I came across this neat mosaic in a train station in New York.
