{making early morning deliveries in the drizzle}

It’s been a showery week. It’s hard to find the motivation to get out of bed in the middle of a downpour, much less drag your soggy behind to work. And as for accomplishing anything productive? fuhgettaboudit.

There are handfuls of activities I can think of that I’d rather do in all this rain. None of them require proper attire or leaving the house. They include: Cuddling up with a steamy mug of hot tea and a good book. Watching marathons of cheesy Lifetime movies on the couch with Doak. Taking shamelessly long and luxurious naps. Baking a Pinterest-inspired treat or two. Working on one of the projects from my DIY to-do list (more on that later). Or catching up on my blog reader. Any or all of these would be oh-so-lovely, don’t you think?

Cute summer outfits are best saved for sunny days, so until things clear up I’ll have to think of other ways to entertain you around here. Until then, I’m off to drink a glass of wine for charity at an annual “bartender bash” fundraiser for the local Boys and Girls Clubs. You know, since I’m already out of the house.

Oh, by the way…

Thanks for all of your feedback on my eyewear conundrum! The Ainsworth frames won by a landslide, and they were my favorites, too. I secretly hoped you all would choose them ;-)

      Agreed. And I dig how they match the edges of the plant.

  • Today I joined @shannatrudell in downtown Lakeland after she finished a wedding setup at @thesommerbuilding. We explored all the cute shops, sniffed everything at @rafanatural, swooned over @scoutandtag’s beautiful vignettes, petted lots of dogs, and cruised through the farmer’s market (well, just the plant vendors). While we were there, I officially fell in love with the @topbuttons boutique: you can shop a curated selection of new pieces, or browse the [amazingly organized] secondhand section; and your purchase helps empower local women and girls through a variety of @topbuttons’ civic partnerships. Shopping for great style that gives back? Count me in! #shoplocal #downtownlakeland #boutique #topbuttons
