I am truly in love with fresh flowers, and lots of them. Clearly. All the little corner stores have been selling flowers SO cheap – roses are 2 dozen for $9 by our place! Granted they arent the highest quality but I dont care – I sort of prefer quantity over quality when it comes to flowers. I have been able to find some good fake ones to have in each room but nothing beats the real deal. It totally brightens up the room and they really do make me happier? Anyone else with me on that? In my search for good fake ones I probably ended up returning about 6 that were absolutely horrible. I now have a few that I love and unfortunately have found that the best and realest looking ones are quite pricey but so worth it because they dont die and last forever!! People during winter time would come in our apartment and ask how I found peonies in the city during the winter! But they are fake 😉 (We have the ones here and here. We also have one from this brand that isn’t available but their quality is fabulous! how amazing is this one?)
We are already missing the beach and warm weather and I am praying it warms up again soon. Tomorrow I am spending the whole day with lil Atticus (pending if Rosie decides to take a bottle) and I am so excited I could squeal. I feel like I am often holding Rosie when I am playing with him so I cant really be as into play time as I would like .. if that makes sense. I have been craving one on one time with my boy so tomorrow I have a fun day planned for us. The other day on the airplane ride home from California (which was one of our most successful kid sleeping flights ever!!!) Atticus kept coming up to me and giving me big hugs around my neck and just laying his head on mine for a few minutes. He did it probably 12 times and it was truly the sweetest thing.
