-hello monday-

hello to a new school week and giggly kids first thing this morning.

hello to a pretty new notebook to help keep shop stuff organized.

hello to the clean smell of my favorite candle burning, the sound of the dryer humming, freshly mopped floors and a quiet house.

hello to pretty pink roses in a blue mason jar

hello to a sweet girl finally napping after talking herself to sleep.

hello to precious morning memories and new traditions, just me and her.

hello to gray rain clouds and the wish for a good storm.

hello to pumpkins at the store and peaks of fall just around the corner.

hello to a new obsession for starbucks skinny caramel macchiatos that I sort of wish would go away.
(or, that I could figure out how to make at home)

hello to week 2 of half marathon training...hello to sore legs and lots of tylenol.

hello again to my crockpot and the search for new recipes.

hello to a new book from a sweet friend.

hello to cute note cards from Target's dollar spot.

hello to 3:15 and hungry kids.
goodbye clean were nice while it lasted.

hello monday...I sure love your fresh new starts.
