A few of my favorite things

 {sweater: Banana Republic, jeans: Penny's, shoes & scarf: Target, watch: art fair}

Overall I'd have to say that this week has been a learning week for me.  I've had lots of time to myself to be able to think and reflect on the kind of person that I want to be and how I want to get there.  I really want to be more grateful for the things around me and treasure each moment.  Especially those with people I love and care about.  
So I've decided to share with you some of my favorite things from this week that I captured through pictures.  I'm thinking of making this a weekly thing, but we'll see.  These things may seem ordinary, but to me they really helped make my week a little bit brighter.  Enjoy!
