winter jasmine

Jasmine means having a reason to look forward to February. Our sunroom smells like perfume of the gods... or at least that's how I imagine it. The plant has had a rough winter but the little star-like flowers still appeared. I'm so happy to see them.

A week ago today, the boy made me breakfast in bed. I know a lot of people don't like Valentine's Day, but I do. I like having an excuse to make a fuss and be romantic and make pretty cards. He snuck down to the kitchen before I was fully awake and returned with a tray full of french toast, juice AND tea, fruit and flowers. I felt utterly spoiled and so very lucky.

daily food

After a few failed attempts, I finally had some success making yogurt. It sure was worth the wait. We've discovered it's best with nuts and a little honey drizzled on top.

wardrobe wishes

I've been a little bit in love with Madewell ever since I first set foot in their store. The clothes are a blend of classic and boho; pretty much exactly my style. I can't stop looking at these pictures from their Spring 2012 line.
