Photosynthesis

I enjoy life's small wonders.

This weekend I had a chance to visit the Yale Botanical Gardens, which prior to this weekend, I didn't even know existed. It was nice to wander around the 76° greenhouses, see all the gorgeous tropical plants and breath in that clean air.

Friday Five Under $50

I decided to switch from clothes to housewares for this week, because even in my small apartment, I'm always looking for new little ways to add a bit of flare. I definitely need some plant stands and I think a gold watercan would be the perfect 'accessory' to my houseplants.

I welcome each new day with a happy heart and a smiling face.

Forgive me for looking so tired in these photos - they were an early morning attempt, foolishly pre-coffee! Outfit photos before the Daylight Savings Time switch always have their challenges, and I have to squeeze them in anyway I can. I'm grateful that Sean is willing to get up early and stand in the cold and help me get photos done. I like to call myself a morning person, but that is kind of a loose interpretation. I'm more like a 9 A.M. morning person. This weekend I'm thinking will call for some serious sleeping in.
