The Good Stuff From This Week

"Rather than life being hills and valleys, I believe that it's kind of like two rails on a railroad track, and at all times you have something good and something bad in your life." 
Rick Warren

Baked these cookies and they were amazing! Molasses and sea salt is my new favorite flavor combo.

My office got organized! I moved offices this summer but it wasn't until I visited my old office--and saw how put-away everything was--that I realized my space needed an overhaul.

Had tea with an old friend in my new house and tea with a new friend in her amazing house. I might even be inspired to paint something!

Was reminded of this absolute classic at the end of an episode of The Americans, my new favorite TV show. 

Saw my happy place (Naples/Marco Island) in the latest issue of Midwest Living. I love that it's just understood that even though cold and snow are my jam, everyone wants to get to the sun for awhile in February.

Heard a rumor that Batman was scouting our local art museum and that both Trader Joe's and Costco might be coming to our area! Now we just need an IKEA and an Anthro and my life will be complete! 

I'm reading Daniel Goleman's new book, Focus: The Hidden Driver of Excellence. It's good but I need to find a novel and stop reading serious books! Any recommendations??

Happy weekend!


  1. How do I get a copy of Midwest Living? I love all the positive things you needing this during the coldest winter I can remember.

  2. I need a batch of those cookies today!! :)


Thanks so much for commenting! I love to read what you have to say. ~Carrie
