A room is only a room until the stories of life are woven into the fabric of it's furnishings.

Honey Bell Oranges
Right now, Honey Bell Oranges are just passing their peak.
Their season is short, and January, is the prime month for ripeness. It is February but they are still available at my market. As far as citrus fruit go, this has to be one of the best. The juice is sweet and smooth, the fruit is easy to peal, and they are delicious! Each morning, I have been squeezing honey bells
And enjoying their delicious juice.
Years ago, I read a book by Alexandra Stoddard, an interior designer and inspirational author, titled, Living a Beautiful Life, Her suggestions and ideas or as she called them 'rituals' were what I wanted to adapt to my every day life. One suggestion was to treat yourself as a special guest in your own home. Use your best china, crystal or linens everyday. Why save them for the few times a year when we entertain? An aha moment. Why not??
A toast to Alexandra Stoddard, palm trees, warm weather, and sunshine!
