January…A Day At A Time

    “In my life’s chain of events nothing was accidental. Everything happened according to a need.” -Hannah Senesh   💗Greetings, sweet friend!💗         I find that many things I do around the home mirrors what often is going on within me.      I’m very much aware that there are spaces in my life that Id like to switch around.     Recently I felt the urge to switch decor in the cottage     and discovered that when switching things around going slowly works best.     Sometimes I toss things out…. other times I just switch things a bit.      January a new month…       The month of beginning again (no matter what has been in the past)       I have a new beginning to  dream…   🥣🥫🍽🥧🥫🍽🥧🥣🥫🍽🥧🥣🥫🍽🥧🥣🥣🥫🍽🥧🥣🥫🍽🥧🥣🥫🍽🥧🥣🥫     This week Joe and I prepared a Florentine tuna casserole.

And living in a small cottage with limited closet space I do watch what I purchase. However this coat was just so darn cute and the price screamed for a return home with me. 😘     So … Continue reading
