Post image for Small Ways To Say “I Love You”

Love is a beautiful thing, and quite a big deal, I think. Hearing those three words can make you feel emotions you never thought possible. They can whirl around you, through you, and sweep you up into another world. What I love most about love, though, is that you don’t necessarily have to say it to let someone know you feel it. Showing your love can be just as powerful… and I think it’s so fun to come up with different ways to do it. It’s the little things. Read more »

I leave my husband a little sticky note on the mirror almost everyday. Sometimes its just an "I love you" sometimes its about something that happened that day, and other times when I know he needs some isnpiration I will leave an uplifting message. I know he really enjoys my little messages, plus it reminds me to take a moment each day to think about my husband (especially when our schedules are busy). And I've found that the more messages he gets the more he thinks of me too and does little things to show his love in return.

my grandparents still leave sweet little notes around their house. I think its my favorite thing about visiting them. seeing that they still love each other and still put in an effort. it melts my heart.

Post image for In My Bag: Homemade Goodness

Imagine reaching into your favorite bag… the one you carry with you more often than not, and pulling out nothing but homemade goodness. A deliciously fragrant perfume you concocted the night before, a face serum you mixed up right before leaving the house in case the cold winter air dries out your skin, a hand-bound journal that lets you keep track of those sudden ideas and houses your magnificent tiny doodles.  Read more »

Post image for The Unexpected Teacher

When I welcomed Oliver into my life a little over a year ago (remember this?), I knew he would change my life. I knew he would bring me so much joy, make me laugh, annoy me to pieces, and melt my heart. I didn’t know, however, that he would end up being somewhat of a teacher. Cats are divine little creatures, and sometimes I think they know a lot more than they let on. Read more »

what a lovely kitty and article! i totally agree - we can learn so much from our 4-legged friends!

It was such a joy, and coincidence, to read this entry as I too adopted a sweet kitty named Oliver a little over a year ago. My Oliver is whats known as a "friendly feral" - in other words, he once belonged to someone, but found himself thrown out on the streets and took up with a group of feral cats in order to survive. You would think being abandoned, and then mistreated by people while living on the streets, Oliver would be jaded and not want to have anything to do with people, but that's not the case. Oliver is one of the sweetest, most loving cats I've ever known. You mentioned many wonderful cat traits/behaviors we could learn from, and I would include one more - the ability to forgive and forget. Our Oliver has certainly done this. He loves his human family with his whole heart even though by all accounts his past should make him feel otherwise. Thank you for your sweet piece - your Oliver is adorable.

Post image for Embrace Winter, Get Cozy

January. The days are short, the skies are gray. The joy and excitement that once filled the air comes to a lull, quietly escaping alongside the holiday season. Wanderlust hits. We want to get out. Away, away, to somewhere warm. We dream of a place with sun-filled days and jacket-less nights. Read more »

The quote is actually "she stood in the storm, and when the wind did not blow her WAY..." Instead of away. FYI.
