Dollar Tree | Halloween Books/Storage Boxes

While I am not big on the macabre style of Halloween decorating I wanted something cute for the coffee bar that was still spooky.  I saw these storage boxes in the Dollar Tree when I went to buy penny wrappers and thought they would be great because not only do they look like books they open up to hide your other junk in them. I think there we...

Nature's Daily Canvas | Sunflower Joy

Beneath a cloudy blue sky, nestled in between miles of corn fields...a vision of yellow joy came to view.  As far as the eye can see these little sun worshipers stood at attention while butterflies and bees happily gathered their nectar one flower at a time. I stood there in awe of it all, taking in the serenity of this place...this part of Nature's Daily Canvas.

Life Writing | Rain, rain go away...and take the Tornadoes with you!

You know that old saying, "When life gives you lemons, make lemonade."  Currently, the saying here would be, " When Life gives you Rain...build an ark."

Over the past few months, the weather here feels more like Mother Nature is tearing pages out of the Weather Channels Guide to Natural Disasters to see just what would happen if I did this... page.

I have lived here all of my life and while there have been a few terrible things that have happened weather-wise, things of late have me quite concerned.

Bath & Body Works | New Signature Fall Fragrances

On July 25th, Bath and Body Works had a FaceBook Live video that shared a few sneak peeks into some of the items we can look forward to seeing in these next few months. During that presentation, a new fragrance was revealed - Sweater Weather - and we had a first quick, albeit blurry look at the Sweater Weather Body Cream packaging.  There were no scent notes shared then, which left us all speculating what this scent would end up being.

Fast forward to this week when two Instagram girls (@toribathandbody and @agirlwithstufftopost)  shared their store finds of more matching that collection scents. 

When will we see these scents release?  If I had to guess I think this next floorset August 26th with the rest of the newly found items including a few more candle collections.When I find out more, including what forms this collection will come in, I will update this posting.
