Sometimes a Monday calls for an afternoon hot chocolate with EXTRA large marshmallows! The child in me, was thrilled when I remembered I had some leftover s’mores marshmallows in the cupboard. They’re so large, only two would fit in the largest mug I own. In this case, a simple pleasure seems to be a bit bigger than usual, today. ☺️
This week, ushers in the first bustle of the holidays for me. A special phone call with a dear friend tomorrow, book clubs, my Mom’s birthday and then figuring out what to cook and bake next week for Thanksgiving. I’ve been focusing on making my home a haven the past few weeks. Lighting a candle 🕯to remind me of blessings I’ve received, soft uplifting music 🎶 to soothe my soul and this week, fresh blooms 💐 on the dining table, a reminder of small beauties and gifts of nature. This mindfulness and focus have truly made my home a haven, and allowed me to focus on a mindset of thankfulness during the month of November.
