The truth is, I kind of struggle this time of year. And then I feel guilty about that, so it adds to it, I guess. So while I am very, very grateful for my job, to be a mom, and for my life generally; I also feel a little down lately.
There is no ”solution” exactly, as this happens pretty much every year for me around this time, and while I see it coming and have my ways of dealing, it’s still hard.
I am trying to enjoy my family and friends as much as I can, go on walks whenever it’s even close to warm enough, and find things to do at home in the evenings. It’s hibernation time.
Trying to appreciate the slowness, the cozy vibes, and endless mugs of hot tea. I feel like a lot of the 10 things I’m loving lately kind of play into this.
Here are 10 things I’m loving lately:
Ombre candle sticks (from Laura, as she sent me a birthday gift card). I am obsessed with candlesticks this season.
I’ve been living in leggings since we’ve had a million snow and sick days. I have three colors of the same style and love them! I also wore them while I was pregnant (the whole way through) and they fit now, as well. They are magic.
Trey got me a puzzle table for my birthday and I LOVE IT SO MUCH. I like to sit on the floor and work on puzzles while we watch TV. Just makes me feel like I’m doing more than just sitting (although I am still sitting, lol).
Nail polish powder dip kit! I already talked one friend into buying this, too (I am an influencer both on and off the Internet, lol).
I don’t have the space in my life right now for nail appointments but I LOVE nail art so much. This is the next best thing to a salon shellac manicure. It lasts!
Got this coat recently and love the fit and color! If you see me walking in my neighborhood lately, I am wearing this.
The painting above is from my mom (a gift) because I kept admiring it at her house. 🙂
Wearing beanies constantly right now—I love this one and bought the same one in five different colors. When I love something, I tend to buy it in multiple colors now, just like my grandma does.
My Nancy Meyers sweater is from our charity shop. We have mugs too! xo. Emma
