i am enjoying...

looking for old hardbacks of classics at half-price books

reading the names of paint colors in design magazines

cold weather, warm drinks and soft blankets

seeing something i like, a gift idea for someone or a recipe and actually remembering to write it down

the abundance of restaurants in dallas making refined southern food

friends collaborating to cook over the past week: taco salads and football, dinner party with homemade ribs, bacon-wrapped meatloaf on a monday

the young victoria

my new boots

inspiring words

discussing and planning what our front room will ultimately look like

a quick weekend trip i have coming up soon

the cowboys in the nfl play-offs

my quarter-century mark which is rapidly approaching

I believe the single most significant decision I can make on a day-to-day basis is my choice of attitude. It is more important than my past, my education, my bankroll, my successes or failures, fame or pain, what other people think of me or say about me, my circumstances, or my position. Attitude keeps me going or cripples my progress. It alone fuels my fire or assaults my hope. When my attitudes are right, there is no barrier too high, no valley too deep, no dream too extreme, no challenge too great for me.
- Charles R. Swindoll

One of my goals for this year is to remember to write down gift ideas, recommendations, websites I notice in passing and anything else that might be useful later. Glad you're enjoying so much!

"cold weather, warm drinks and soft blankets"

this sounds amazing. We're in our cooler season with all the rain ( no snow though ) and I love nothing more than wrapping myself in blankets, drink hot cocoa and watch a dvd :)
