It’s good for me to keep things that make me feel happy. To collect so many objects and souvenirs that remind me of my favorite places, feelings, and people together in one place. This bulletin board is from the now-defunct Dana College, a keepsake in its own right. I love that everything here captures a moment that is gone forever, because seeing shades of those experiences as I buzz around the house each morning reminds me to prepare for a day of worthy of that board.

we had planned to go on a leaf walk tonight, thought about stopping in at the dundee gallery or using a gift card at b&g tasty foods, but a whole day of torrential rain (november rain, right?) led us to opt for a night closer to the comforts (and radiated heat) of home at the apartment. we got cinnamon bread from the bakery across the street for banana pecan french toast, danced, and took it easy.
read e-mail from great-grandma.
and had a bedtime phone chat with grandpa.

Andrea’s candles are made with pure coconut oil, and they come in a beautiful box with a matching pack of matches. The candle in itself is in a lovely glass jar and has a light, clean scent. My mom is the one who first told me about these candles after she got to know Andrea and ordered several for herself–she said they arrived super fast and all came with these cute little matchboxes which I LOVE. I am all about little details like that.
Andrea has a show on Hallmark called Home&Family that my mother always watched, and after googling her a little bit my mom found out that she has a really awesome blog, she’s a mother of 4, wife of a celebrity, and she was just starting a candle business. My mom liked that they were made with coconut oil, and placed a big order. It turns out that my mom was Andrea’s first order! Now we get all our candles from Andrea Schroder not just because they’re designed and scented beautifully, but because she really runs it herself and the customer service she provides is amaaaazing. I really look up to her. Andrea Schroder is cool. Go check out her site and enter to win one of her candles here!
To enter, just leave a comment. You don’t have to pin anything, or like anything on Facebook (unless you want to, because that’d be nice of you), you just have to leave a little comment and I’ll use a random number generator to pick a winner on Tuesday the 24th at midnight CST.
I’m just giving one of these away–it’s my own–to thank you all for reading. Thank you for sticking with me! I love what I do and I love you all. Good luck!
