a lovely living

Bedford Springs

Well, today I turn 36. It feels strange being on this side of 35…the side that’s closer to 40 than 30. And yet here I am, feeling not a day over 30 ;) As it may be, I wouldn’t trade in any of the years and go back. Life isn’t perfect, but it is good.

This picture was taken beside one of Bedford Springs Resort’s mineral springs. The resort is picturesque year round, but it’s just magical this time of year! My husband surprised me and booked a night away over the weekend to celebrate. We weren’t even there for 24 hours, but enjoying a dinner date, sleeping in, working out together, and then having breakfast together was so incredibly refreshing! I forget how much we need that every once in a while with three little ones demanding our attention every waking moment at home. And now, even though I’m not exactly ready for the weekend to end, I’m also ready to jump into this busy week leading up to Christmas!

LOFT has been having non-stop sales lately, and I picked up this sweater on a recent stop in there. It’s so soft and beautiful and the color is striking. It could be dressed up with trousers or worn with sweats, it’s so versatile! And let me also mention these boots, because I’ll be wearing them continuously for the next few months! The past few years I’ve been on the hunt for a casual winter boot that would be great in the snow but that had a sleeker look than my Uggs. I randomly came across these when we were shopping on Black Friday and I knew I had finally found what I was looking for. I turned to my husband and said his hunt for the perfect b-day present for me was taken care of ;)
