snuggles, old friend and laughter {day 342}


I woke up to this pup laying his head on my shoulder. He is my second favorite snuggler to wake up to. 🙂
I also got to see an old friend tonight and spent a few hours reminiscing, chatting and laughing a lot.
I’m grateful for good beginnings and ends to this day.

rest. {day 195}


this is how I spent my day today. it was a lazy day in the best kind of way, did a little laundry, some dishes and some cooking, but at such a leisurely pace it felt restful somehow. I almost finished bread & wine. I can’t wait to share more about it with you as it gets closer to it’s release. it’s one of those books that makes you feel like you could be best friends with the author because she is so honest and vulnerable and because some of her hardest moments you understand. because she is willing to be broken and honest and known, I also feel known.
so tonight I’m grateful for strangers that feel like good friends, for being known, and for a productive, but restful and happy, day.
