Bend But Don't Break | La La Lovely Blog

The trees are talking, waving, and whispering.

As they wave they are echoing similar sounds to the waves of the sea.  The crashing always quiets.

They greet me and I greet them.  We are old friends.  These exact trees have covered and comforted me since I was a girl.

We’ve watched each other grow.

Perfect Squidgy Sofa via La La Lovely

This squidgy sofa as seen on Sanna Tranlov.  I’m really tiring of my non-squidy sofa.  I still love the look and the shape, but I need squidge.  You know?  I love everything about this space, really.  It’s got me slightly looking forward to fall.

Chocolate yogurt pots.  I haven’t tried these yet, but I think this is the week for trying chocolate peanut yogurt.  Don’t you?  The recipe looks simple enough.  Sweet.

Don't let the stupid things break your #happiness.

This simple thought that we simply don’t always consider.  Sometimes it’s the littlest things that ruin our whole big day.

fave cinnamon toast | la la lovely blog

fave kate morton books _ la la lovely blog

loosing your first tooth | la la lovely blog

A few fave things /

1 / Cinnamon toast.  Teddy bear cinnamon toast to be exact.  My mom always made me cinnamon toast and when I make it for my kids It makes me feel like I’m serving them up a fragrant slice of comfort from yesterday for today.  We had back to school shots on Wednesday, so we started the day with this.  Toast is the ultimate comfort food, for me…and we are particularly fond of making animals out of our food, around here.

2 / Kate Morton books are my favorite fiction right now.  If I wrote fiction, I imagine it would come out like this – ok, wish it would come out just like this.  I can only find large print versions at the library right now, so large prints are my favorite, too.  I’m currently reading The House at Riverton.

4 / Loosing a first tooth.  Is there anything like it?  Liam Brave lost his and he has been talking funny and making sweet smiles and funny faces ever since.

I also have a favorite sweater . . . .

Black Exterior via La La Lovely Blog

I’ve been noticing, lately, that Ive been pinning a lot of black houses.  While, white is still my favorite, black just might be a close second.  I’m loving this look on traditional homes, cottages, and very modern homes alike.

Today, I’m sharing a few of my favorites.  A few I’d like to escape to or live, everyday, in.

This is a vacation spot.  Can you imagine?  If I ever built a lake house, I’d have this in mind.

days are discoveries | La La Lovely Blog

What are days for?

Life living….Yes!  But, in this day we live in…. they are meant for cramming and jamming with this and that.  They are for getting things done and getting ready for the next.  Days are for doing.  And, quite the opposite, many days are spent dragging.  Pushing through this day, dreaming of the next, and the next, or 100 days away that holds a promise of something that was planned for.

Days are for discovering.

Today is a day, like never before or none to come.
