Sweet Spots in the Living Room

 photo signature_zps1e656175.png
There are certain sweet spots in my home that make me smile.
There are some not so sweet spots, too, of course, 
but today I'm sticking with the good stuff.

Yesterday was my birthday. I worked. 
Usually, I find a way to take the day off. 
Also, I scheduled a mammogram for after work.
Dumb idea.
The mammogram is important, sure, but
I could've cut myself some slack
and planned it for another day.

Today I've done exactly what I want. 
Long, hilly walk with my neighbor and good friend.
Lunch all by myself and staring out at the bird feeders.
Hanging with the dog and youngest daughter.
It's becoming my new favorite pastime.

I hope this post finds you doing whatever you want, too!

Picked up these gorgeous and fragrant flowers at Wegman's last week.
Can't for the life of me remember what they are called. 
Heaven. I will definitely be looking for these again. 

The. Sun. Is. Shining.

A clean, sparse mantel.

An antique etching and candy dish.
Growing up there were always candy dishes in living rooms.
There is something charming about this that I love.
Lemon drops are the featured candy.

We celebrated our 19th wedding anniversary recently. 
Still love this guy.

Here's to the sweet spots in my home and my life.

Linking up with Kim at Savvy Southern Style!
