I've been slammed this week. Between real work, the shop and the upcoming holidays, it's hard to keep up with everything. I never made it to the store to pick out flowers, but D surprised me with these sweet yellow tulips and the footed glass vase (thrifted, naturally), which I love.
We have big plans this weekend (a couple of family parties), and I know we'll be very, very busy. But I'm making little promises to myself. I will make time for my first pot of Christmas tea this season, I will give myself at least one hour to sit quietly and read, and I will keep the house clean. It's so hard to feel relaxed and focused when my living space falls into chaos.
