Today a super fancy and expensive designer came over to remodel our house.
(Or, a super nice and marginally expensive
plumber came over to re-pipe our sink.)
This is what he left.
Isn't is lovely?
But I am choosing to embrace this.
To find beauty in the mess.
Because we have a house.
Because we have the means to fix what needs to be fixed.
Because although there are holes in the drywall, we again have fresh, clean water.
What percentage of the world can say that?
In the spirit of mess, I am loving these crazy flowers.
They are bright, happy and a little bit chaotic.
Just like my life.
I love the frayed edges, the imperfect stitching, the randomness.
Come back tomorrow for a little giveaway starring them in their funky glory.
Lastly, I needed (wanted) a little treat.
So I made my friend Alicia's Lazy Man's Toffee.
I have since renamed it Toffee Crack.
Because it is addicting.
I am mad she shared the recipe.
It is too good and too easy.
Messy, easy, yummy, trouble.
Look around you, and change your perspective of the mess and chaos.
It's not really so bad!
(Don't get mad at me for introducing you to Toffee Crack. It's not my fault.)
