Weekly wrap up ♥

Hello Friends ♥

One of the best parts of having a blog is being able to look back at things I've done.  It's like a scrapbook that I've been keeping since 2011.  In a few weeks I'll be coming up on the 1 year anniversary of moving and I've been feeling nostalgic for my old house.  Scrolling back, I'm so grateful for all of my posts.  I have so many pictures of every room in that house.  Pictures of my kitchen window and the nightstand next to my bed.  Little mundane things like making breakfast or playing checkers at the kitchen table, are all there.  So many meals made in that kitchen.  I do miss my flat top stove! : )

(they changed the mailbox, mine was green)

I've driven by it a few times and it's the weirdest feeling.  It's a house that I lived in for 19 years. Rob and I built the house and designed every detail.  All of a sudden I can't go in.  I don't live there anymore.  I wonder what it looks like now and I'm so tempted to knock on the door, although I never would have the nerve.

Don't mind me, I just have trouble with change.  Like, it takes me forever.  And ever.  Rob says I'm too sentimental, but I don't think anyone can be too sentimental. 

Seems impossible ♥


Anyhow, it's a new day and life moves on.  That's just something that was on my mind this week ♥

 Here are a few random pictures of other bits and bobs from the week:  

Still loving the morning light.  The weather here has been incredibly hot and humid.  The mornings are steamy and feel more like Florida than Massachusetts. Sometimes the windows are all fogged up : )

We are overindulging in fresh fruit this season. 
Currently cherries!
Always searching for the perfect one.  Come to find out...they're all perfect! ♥
My secret weapon for a perfect pedicure: a sparkly topcoat. 
It hides all the chips and imperfections, while still looking pretty! 
When snapchat filters actually match your real life clothes...
This is me killing time while waiting for John to brush his teeth.
And I would totally wear these earrings if I had them! They match my shirt perfectly!  : )
Another secret of mine.... my go to late night snack. 
Cheerios with chocolate chips!  Don't knock it till you try it!
Flowers in my mom's kitchen, at night.
Still pretty ♥
My new butterfly bracelet makes me smile ♥
We saw Christopher Robin yesterday.  It was a beautiful film that I highly recommend. 
Bring tissues.  You'll need them! (at least I did ♥)
Don't you just love Pooh? ♥
Have a happy and blessed Sunday, my friends!  Enjoy the day!
