My little bug is overcoming a little bug. It came on slowly with a couple nights of fussiness, but has fully bloomed to that place of OH MY GOODNESS THIS IS MISERABLE one moment and YOU’RE MY FAVORITE PERSON IN THE WHOLE WORLD the next, where fits of tears are followed by tired smiles and giggles.
I’m using the words of my dear friend, of whom I had the pleasure of spending time with in Los Angeles this past week, and after a long day of chaos with more being added to her plate, she let it out… a cheery, “I can rally.”
And so, in the midst of fulfilling orders, photoshoots, projects and deadlines, housework, and most importantly, taking care of two little souls who just so happen to be on almost completely opposite sleeping schedules, that little bug is trying to kick our tails. But we’re kicking right back.
Cause, baby, we can rally.
With things like meeting the sky’s spectacular show of the season’s first flurries with our own indoor light show.
And afternoon fireside tea parties in front of the Christmas tree… with my favorite kind of “tea” of the hot chocolate variety. My cup displaying a mountain of whipped goodness atop and my girl’s adorned with a rainbow of marshmallows.
And because days of rallying are always sweeter with something special to drink from, we’re loving our new set of nesting tea cups from the one and only Starbucks. I saw them on a visit during my recent travels and knew they’d be perfect for our family. And just because I love ya’ll so much, I picked up a set for you too! This was the little somethin’ special I mentioned on my twitter feed on Sunday for a lucky Sunday Citar participant. I love seeing all the great quotes you all link up every week… thank you!
The Holidays are upon us! Have a very merry day.
