It’s been a challenging sort of week thus far. The kind filled with disappointments and soggy socks from the rain. And sad feelings from missing my best friends, one of which just had her beautiful baby, and the other whose baby is taking his first steps. But there was a moment today when the boys and I had croissants and hot cocoa after school, and it was so sweet and everyone was warm, content, and happy. I declared every rainy day to be a hot cocoa day, and the boys said “Yeah!” They even left their mugs 1/3 full so I could finish off the rest (and I tried not to think about backwash). Cocoa is cozy.

Other cozy things today: a sweet gift from Jozen, and curling up with the novel The Death Cure. Yep, YA lit is my guilty pleasure!

    I’m with you on the YA lit — I just bought the second book in the second Percy Jackson series.

    Jozen, the mug is vintage Bersa. http://www.huset-shop.com/gustavsberg-bersa-coffee-cup-p-443.html I found a set of two saucers and cups at the thrift store for three dollars! Thrift store find of my life!

    Hello Jennifer,

    I’m a YA lit lover too! I also moved to this area a few years ago. I hope you’re feeling more settled and that you and your sweet babies are doing well.
