Halifax has been under a steady deluge of rain and overcast weather for over four weeks, 24 hours-a-day! On my down time all I want is to curl up with a frothy bowl of soup, a steaming cup of hot cocoa, a fuzzy cardigan and a good classic. Todays misty grey skies led me back to my cozy apartment to make a batch of savory carrot soup, watch the delayed finale of Survivor, and experience nostalgia for the sun as I pour over shorts and sandals in Elle and Flare. My peachy coral roses from graduation are in full bloom, I’ve pulled my spring & summer wardrobe out of storage, my apartment is finally organized after the flooding (three weeks in a hotel), and the finale of Gossip Girl starts in a few short hours. Despite the drear out my window, I am thankful for all these things that brighten my day!
