Five Things Friday 10.10.14


Happy Friday! How was your first week of October? October is one of my favorite months and this week brought my birthday and some beautiful fall weather with it, so I can’t complain. A lot of wonderful people in my life made this week a great one. Keeping up with this blog has made me become incredibly grateful for the life that I am blessed with living. Here are five additional things that made this week extra good:

1. My birthday-It was incredibly special and I have never felt so blessed in my life to be surrounded by the most amazing people. I’m speechless and feel very loved. It was perfect 🙂

2. Buying books-I love the anticipation of books arriving in the mail! I can’t wait for Lang Leav’s “Love and Misadventure” and Paulo Coelho’s “The Alchemist” to show up soon. My plan was to save these books for the flight to London but I know myself and I won’t be able to resist starting them before the trip.

3. Bath and Body’s “Leaves” candle- It’s everything that fall encompasses in a candle. It’s the best scent ever.

4. The eclipse-A perk of waking up at 5 am is that I was able to catch the eclipse that occurred on Wednesday morning. I had never seen a “blood moon” lunar eclipse before and the sky was perfectly clear to see it. Space is cool!

5. Harry and David’s Spiced Apple Cider Tea-This was part of a birthday gift and I have been drinking two cups a day, sometimes more, and I can’t get enough. It’s delicious and serves to also warm my ice cold hands on a daily basis.
