A Day Without Words | A Grey Bookish Day

Sunday was a dreary, rainy day, made even more soggy by the melting of the week’s blizzard. We picked up a little salt water taffy (thanks to Kaylah for reminding me how much I love it) with the groceries, took a trip to the bookstore, then stopped by our foxy Thor-looking neighbor’s apartment (who happens to be a special effects makeup artist – swoon) for a Holy Grail party. We left quickly to get over-tired bear to bed, but not before she stole some of his fruit. Papa Bear went back over for the movie portion of the festivities while I got a little much-needed me time. It was a good day.

How did you spend your weekend?

Favorite Things | New Books | March

This monthly new books tradition is one of the best ideas I have had in a long time. I’m an obsessive researcher, and although I also have this magical thing called the internet, I still love being able to sit down with a great book, fiction or non, and read and reference for real.

March’s selections got quite mystical. Maybe it was the rain that day, maybe it was the fact that spring is right around the corner, I don’t know. But vegetables, ancient magical symbolism and faeries seem just right for this time of year.

365 Photo Challenge | Day 71 | Shamrock

Day 71 - Shamrock

Day 71 of the 365 photo challenge is “Shamrock.” Oh how I love when Papa Bear wears his tight T-shirts. Funny how everyone thinks this Norwegian/Czech/German boy is Irish around this time of year.

Style Search | Snow Day

Tuesday was a wonderful day. School was cancelled for the hubby bear, and my boss called me when I was about to walk out the door to tell me that I didn’t need to brave the snow for my 30-mile commute down to the city. Huzzah!

Style Search | Snow Day

Funny, because this is one of the only days I was all dressed up pretty for work. That is because, as I promised Kaylah (otherwise known as The Dainty Squid) in my Blog Crushes & Resolutions post on Monday, I totally managed to get out for a photo shoot this morning! And I even had Papa Bear to help! Best of all, we managed to capture the pure essence of both the Clear Winter and Cool Winter seasons in these photos.

It was a stunningly beautiful, if cold morning, and I headed into the woods to be a winter fairy.

February Favorite Posts

February is a short month anyway, but seriously, where did it go? It did fly by quickly, but that’s the way we want February to go, right? Because we are so over winter, and totally ready for spring.

So I am now finally able to start putting together spring posts! Woo hoo! Color me JAZZED. Let’s take a look back at some of my favorite posts and photos from February, in case you missed them!

Keep an eye out on Katrina’s Capture Your 365 blog for my upcoming guest post in March!
