I have been sick in bed for literally days and have felt like I have hacked up half a lung. Luckily I have another one, so I should be good to go. Although it has not been the most pleasant experience and least of all the most productive period in my life, I am fortunate to recognize love. Through all the medications, visit to the doctors, and in and out of cold sweats and sleep, I realize Todd you have seen me at my worst and still love me. For this I am grateful.
Ironically talking about my love for Toddy made me realize I haven’t posted this month’s five things I love. Please pardon the tardiness and indulge in some lovely goodness:
First up is Chai Tea Latte.
Quick back story. About five years ago I was obsessed. There is this adorable coffee shop on CMU’s campus called Kaya. I went there daily and ordered Chai until I couldn’t drink anymore. I didn’t go there for about a year and when I was back in my mood I couldn’t remember where it was located and I thought it went out of business. In November I discovered it was still there and in the exact same spot. THIS ENTIRE TIME! Now, I’m back but only drink in moderation ;)
Lately, I’ve discovered my feminine side and have been dabbling in a little bit of everything. I have started wearing perfume and although I absolutely love it, I don’t know how to describe it. It smells good and doesn’t give me a headache and that’s all I can ask for :)
I don’t know if it’s because I was so busy and didn’t have a good balance on my personal and business life but I didn’t set any time aside for my family. I think my step mom took note and every day for the month of November and into December, I received a post card from her with some cute little thought or message written on it along with a picture . I saved each and every single one and it not only made me smile, it made my day. Thank you Cheri. I love you.
Every year for Christmas, Todd’s mom makes these wonderful slippers of all different sizes and colors. I love, love, homemade gifts. These slippers are just adorable and so comfy—and best of all WARM!! I love them so much and I can’t wait to share what homemade gift I got for Christmas this year. Believe me, it’s incredible.
This year for Thanksgiving I did something completely out of the ordinary. I outsourced everything. Not to sound all snotty and my time is so valuable, but I would rather spend time with family than cooking and cleaning. So I bought two dinners and believe it or not, it was good. So good in fact, I would order it again. It was the most stressed free holiday I have ever had at my house :)
So tonight is New Year's Eve. I have hope everybody has safe and happy celebration. I know Toddy and I are going to be spending some quality time together. Have a good one! :)
