old postcards in a castle street antique shop
Well, today has been a day mainly consisting of antiquing. We started out with lunch at Atlanta Bread, which is a place I've grown to really adore over the past couple of years here in Wilmington. After a quick lap around the Mayfaire Town Center, we trekked over to The Ivy Cottage, which is - hands down - our favorite antique shop in town. The selection, the reasonable pricing, the complimentary coffee... add in that it was raining & thundering as we explored, & you have a little glimpse into my perfect kind of day. Then, it was on to Castle Street, where we browsed a shop we had never been in before. Now we've come home for a little breather before we head out for dinner this evening. All in all, a lovely day.
I just wanted to pop in on this gloomy, rainy Friday afternoon to share a few things with all of you.
- I've been obsessed with crochet lately, & I'm currently working on a single-crochet scarf made out of "Fort Worth Blue" yarn. I may look up a pattern next & try my hand at that. Or, I may just make a double-crochet scarf.
- After reading about Heather Wardell's morning routine, I've decided to incorporate Morning Pages into my daily routine. I think it will be an excellent stress-relieving exercise.
- I've been drinking out of my elephant mug from Kelsey a lot lately. It makes me happy. What have I been drinking out of it? Creme brûlée coffee, black, with one Stevia in the Raw.
- Today, my schedule of classes for my first semester of Occupational Therapy School was finalized. I am BEYOND excited, & I can't wait until school starts! I'll be writing more about this soon.
- Similarly, our move to Greenville is coming up soon, which I also plan to write about. We are hiring movers for the first time ever, which definitely takes some of the stress out of the equation.
- Two years ago, my sister was in Paris, studying abroad with Millsaps College. She wrote a journal while there, & it's available to read here. That is what is on the docket for me this afternoon.
