Friday flowers (+ pay it forward picks)

I splurged and bought myself a small bunch of lilacs. Sometimes you just need to treat yourself to something lovely.

lilacs (and tea)
{lilacs, a little notebook, strong black tea with milk, a novel}

Speaking of lovely things, I was thrilled by everyone's response to the pay it forward post. I wish I could pick all of you, but I can't delude myself into thinking I would be able to get that many packages sent out.

Diana, Ashley Maureen, Hanna, Ashley Morgan, and Sarah Smith - I'll be contacting you shortly to get your addresses! I'm so excited to pass on the fun Jac started.

Have a wonderful weekend, my dears!
