My Favorite Things #001

I've decided to share some of my favorite things. It's good to focus on "the lovlies" in your life. It makes for a positive attitude and a cheery disposition. Who doesn't want a positive attitude and a cheery disposition?
I love my aprons. I mean L-O-V-E my aprons, big fancy, swirly capitol "L" love my aprons. I'm not good at prioritizing things, so I can't say for sure if they are my number one favorite thing, but they are up there.
Most of mine come from Anthropologie because they have the best, most beautiful, inspiring aprons on the planet. Yes, aprons can be inspiring. Let's face it, even the most positive, cheery people are going to have "those days". You know what I'm talking about. The days you set aside to catch up on laundry only to have your washing machine take a crap just as you get started. Or you've finally finished scrubbing a months worth of gunk off the kitchen floor and someone drops a jar of sweet pickles and it smashes creating a 10 square foot radius of sticky pickle juice. It's the kinks life throws at you to try and get you down. Now imagine glancing up from the pickletastrophy and something catching your eye. Something brightly colored, with happy flowers and festive rick rack and it says to you, "Hey, let me help you. We can fix this. We can do it together and we'll do it with a smile." That's what my aprons do!

This one is Emma's. So very cute!
I was stacking aprons as I ironed them. Yes, I iron them.

I iron everything. I'll save that conversation for another day.

Festive rick rack (it's like long rows of tiny smiles)
