I am so happy to start this week – the last month of my life has been the most stressful! I’ve been lying, sneaking around, acting like a shady beach…I’ve been planning a surprise party for my husband’s 35th birthday. And it made me a little crazy.
Let me tell you how difficult it is to surprise the person you’re married to in your own home and keep it together. The lies. The constant fear I’d ask him to respond to a text for me when I couldn’t and I’d forget the last message was party-related, the Facebook invite popping up on my home screen on my phone every time someone RSVP’d or posted.
Anyway, it turned out amazing, and I cannot even tell you how relieved I am not to have to carry my phone around with me everywhere I go out of sheer terror the surprise would be ruined if I left it in front of him and he saw an RSVP or a text or a confirmation email come through.
My heart legit cannot handle this kind of stress. But I’m so thankful it all turned out perfectly, and it was a surprise, and it was amazing! We have the best people in our lives, and we so appreciate all they bring to the table in terms of their friendship and love. We’re fortunate, and I love that.
Back to the point, though: Scarves.
Sure, it’s the end of January and everyone is ready for spring, but I have to talk about scarves. Last week I posted an Instagram roundup and I have never received more compliments or questions about a single item than the colorful scarf I was wearing in my Insta photo. We don’t have much use for scarves here in Florida, especially a blanket scarf. However, everyone was in love with the bright, bold colors.
They were described as refreshing, gorgeous, the perfect color combo, and everyone stated they were so happy to see colors like those in the middle of winter. Unfortunately, said scarf was a gift from my husband more than a year ago and it’s no longer available.
Because everyone loved it so much, I spent some time online looking for perfectly colorful, inexpensive, super fun scarves to help transition from the cold, bland, colorless winter to the bold and beautiful spring.
