Happy Things

There are just some things around my apartment that made me happy this weekend:

My white bed with a pretty yellow pillow


The purple orchid I splurged on.
It is the most beautiful thing, and makes me so happy to look at it.
Any advice on keeping orchids alive? I want to keep it around for awhile.

B's wedding announcement on my fridge.
I smile every time I pass it.

I hope your weekend was as lovely as mine was.

water your orchid with three ice cubes once a week :) It should stay around for a long time!

I know exactly where you got that pillow ... I've been dreaming of it since I saw it. LOVE! The orchid is gorgeous and no matter what ... Orchids add such a calmness to a room. Enjoy your Monday! xo

What a pretty post! I've really been loving your blog lately. I put a few ice cubes in my orchid every Sunday after church. They last forever that way!

Orchids are like a must for my future house. I love them. And all these pictures- they are so feminine and girly!


I think my mom hardly waters the orchid and keeps it out of direct sunlight or something... but I'm not sure. She doesn't let me touch them....
