The Good Life

This morning began so beautifully and the day just keeps getting better! We didn't get the snow I had hoped for last night, but it is still in the forecast for today and tomorrow! We've been enjoying a light, steady rain since about 4:30 this morning, and since Margaret is so sweetly collecting views from our kitchen sinks, I just can't resist sharing mine. Have a peek, friends! This is the kind of day I just love!

We were so cozy this morning, tucked safely into the comfort of our warm kitchen while, still clad in pajamas, we enjoyed a tasty breakfast of homemade bread with butter and strawberry jam. Of course, on a morning like this, we just had to have hot cocoa, too!

And just a little while ago, I was happy to discover the fun fact that Dawn shared on her blog this morning: apparantly, today is National Popcorn Day! What better excuse do I need to stay indoors with a nice hot bowl of one of our favorite treats? I'm hoping that later today, Meghan will go down easily for her typically long afternoon nap, so Dylan and Caitlyn and I can snuggle together, snacking on popcorn, and watch The Adventures of Milo and Otis (we've had this movie for a while but I still haven't managed to actually watch the entire length of it!).

This is such a perfect day!

Hi Melissa,
So nice to meet you and see the view from your sink!
We had lots of toast and jam and hot cocoa and popcorn at our place today, too!

SO much goodness. I want to come over for coffee sometime. Come on, is New Mexico really that far away?

Your kitchen looks so warm & cozy, Melissa! (And this is just the window!) I love the colors of these candles--just lovely.

You're a dear for participating, and are blessed to have had such a sweet day with your family. God is so good.
