It’s been a quiet month around here so far…and I’m not complaining about it. Not only did January feel extra long this year, but I was also insanely busy. So it’s nice to have a few leisurely weeks this month. And that got me thinking about the things I am enjoying at the moment.
Unseasonably warm days: The past few days have felt more like spring than winter. We’ve had a string of sunny, 55-degree days that have made me want to get outside and enjoy my sanity strolls again. I’m also loving that it is staying lighter past 5 pm these days (and now we have less than a month to go before we adjust the clocks again!). Spring certainly feels like it is coming!
Red Velvet Donuts from Dunkin: Did you know that Dunkin has Red Velvet donuts? Well, technically, I had seen that they did, but I never actually saw a Red Velvet donut in one of their stores. Until this weekend. I was so excited to get my hands (pun intended) on one of my favorite flavors to discover what it would taste like in donut form. I’m happy to report that it was very good (and sweet). I’m assuming this is just a Valentine’s Day special, so I plan on enjoying it until next week.
Rediscovering workouts: I’ve been happily getting back into workout mode again, and it has made all the difference in my weeks. I’ve found that I love a Wednesday workout. It breaks up my week while giving me extra energy as we head into the weekend. And it has made me grateful for the flexible schedule that I have and the ability to make it to a less crowded mid-morning workout.
Tea parties: My client recently hosted a beautiful tea party at her home, and let’s just say, she thought of everything. From the colorful teapots with many different types of teas to choose from to the most delicious tea sandwiches I have ever had, my client did such a beautiful job hosting and bringing together inspiring women for an afternoon of conversation and connection.
My necklace stack: All of the necklaces I wear lately are from Cupcakes and Cashmere. I love how dainty they are and how much they sparkle. They’re lightweight enough that I don’t have to take them off when I ride, and I seem to be adding to my collection. I recently swapped out my usual stack in favor of the small Olympia Half-Dipped Heart and the Coco Gradient Choker necklaces. Did I mention that Cupcakes and Cashmere is currently having a sale? So, if you’re looking to treat yourself to something for Valentine’s Day, check it out.
What are some of your favorite things at the moment?
