well, how do you do this week, lovelies?

we had a week of doing things like going to king burger in a snow storm (as in burger king, in which we found 2 hairs in one kids size french fries – eww ), driving an hour to cabella’s to see taxidermy animals, and watching way too much tv (kids screaming, “i want that, i want that” every time a commercial comes on – i suppose we will have to tv detox once its warm enough to leave our cave).  the ground is still white and the winds are still howling.  winter is still doing its thing here in the mid-west.

but, flowers lifted my spirits again.  on one of our drives we stopped into trader joes (which is no where near our house) and i had to grab a bouquet.  the photos are making me just as happy as the flowers themselves, actually.   rocco had fun shredding a few, but as i’m learning . . . there is beauty in the broken.

are you all surviving winter?  go ahead, rant and rave and tell me how you are surviving.  i’d love to know.

if you need to, take a drive, take a bath, pick up your favorite magazine, buy some flowers and light a tropical candle.  just don’t listen to your toddler when they say they want to go to king burger.  you might find out, like we did, that they only wanted to go for the chocolate milk?!!!!!

happy weekend!

ps- a few ways to beat the winter blues.

    Fresh pretty flowers (especially ranunculus, which are my favorite) are the best part of spring. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos and reminding us that spring will actually get here… someday.
