Close, No Cigar

friday love / a thousand threads
No snow for us! Ha!

Actually I’m really jealous… it’s been such a long time since we’ve had a nice big snowstorm. And I know there are a ton of terrible things that can come of a big storm, lack of power being key, but there’s also always a chance you might just have to hunker down in a nice warm house and drink hot cocoa all weekend… which, after a couple of really busy weekends in a row, is kind of where I’m at… so stay warm those of you just (literally only a few miles) north of me!

Drink some hot cocoa and make some snow angels for me… even though I’m not much of a fan of winter, I really do love (or maybe just miss… it’s been more than two years!) the white fluffy stuff.

Here are a few of my favorites…

These adorable floral friendship bracelets.

This single ladies Valentines brunch.

The creatures of oh, albatross — I’m dying over this guy.

Spring ’13 Scout & Catalogue.

This genius new fashion blog — h/t to the always-inspiring Anne Sage.

Million dollar nuggets.

The prettiest wedding dresses from Whitney Deal.

Alt advice for beginning bloggers.

I’m late to this, but just in case… it’s worth it.

Turns out, those divorce statistics you’ve heard aren’t one size fits all.

    That frenchie is the cutest, and that is such an adorable Etsy shop. They have the quirkiest fun finds.

    I have to agree with you that a snow day at home curled up with hot cocoa is the best-est. 🙂
