When Life Gives Your Lemons..

You make lemonade right? Well, where do you get the sugar from? What if you don't own a pitcher! What if you don't like lemonade?! 

I feel as if I've had a lot of lemons given to me lately. No, thrown at me. I feel like I am out of sugar to sweeten that lemonade... I feel a bit bruised from being hit with these lemons, and lemon juice stings

I'm exhausted from trying to play catch.

Why can't life throw raspberries? I would much rather have raspberries thrown at me.  

Today I came home from running errands with a massive headache
to find a box sitting on my porch.  
I excitedly brought it in. 
I ate my TacoBell with Taylor, eyeing the package out of the corner of my eye... 
I cleaned the house, keeping the box in view... 
Waiting to open it.. 
I just felt like waiting.

I finally felt like I was in the right state of mind.

I opened the package to see a beautiful vintage tea set I just purchased from nocarnations. (I couldn't help myself.. sorry future macbook, you will just have to wait)

Life sure has given me lemons lately. I can't have lemonade, but I will happily sip some lemon tea from my newest tea set. 

Few things make me as happy as tea sets do. I think it's because of the Tea Time I used to share with my mother and sisters back when I lived close.

Other than Mr. Taylor Captain Alaska Thomas, What else makes me happy?
 Mowgli knows...
 Mowgli, modeling the new "Red Fox" hat for the shop.  Psst this hat will be on it's way to the pup in California this Monday!

Tomorrow if weather permits will be picture day. I have some exciting things to show you.
