Why We Do It...
The days are long and dark. Life feels so mundane during these days of being cooped up inside. But there is always a little weekend toward then end, closer to Spring, that is tucked away in my mind and my calender.
It gives me a reason to buy the cute candle from Target that says, "Choose Happiness" in cheery yellow.
It gives me an excuse to indulge in some decorating magazines or new decorating books. The above books are books from previous B&B weekends at home...the magazines below are for this weekend's reading.
I spruce up the house with little things. Like these faux hydrangeas I scored for $5 last weekend at Joann fabrics of all places.
A picture of our layered bed. I just know the kids are gonna sleep late so we can too.
Mason jars of fresh flowers...Just buy one inexpensive bouquet and divide it up among 2-4 Mason jars. Little jars of happiness sprinkled all over your home.
Creating a life of beauty does not have to be extravagent. It just takes a small amount of time and effort. Happy Valentine's Day friends!
