(A wish waiting to be made) 
This week has admittedly been long and challenging, so its more important than ever that I focus on the great things in my life, and the fortunes I do have. I plan on spending my last day off work for the next week (before my birthday!) enjoying the sunshine, family’s company, and probably some baking. I am determined to make this next year the most exciting, productive, successful year of my life thus far, so with that being said, I’m convinced its completely ok to spend my last week of 23 with no plans but to relax. Here’s a few things currently making me smile. 

(Some books I’ve been coveting on my mom’s bookshelf) 
(A quiet pathway up to our favorite breakfast spot in Blowing Rock) 

(My new patio lights brightening up a gloomy day) 

(Homemade sugar cookies for a girls night in) 

(Enjoying the sunshine and getting back in my routine) 
(A short stack of my very own)
(Taking advantage of free samples in Blowing Rock)
(An old school movie theater we discovered in West Jefferson)
