the senses

On this day in 2016 this is what I'm experiencing:

SIGHT: My cute cute husband playing his video games with the best little concentrated face that there ever was.

SOUND: Listening to fireworks in the distance that celebrate this lovely state and the pioneers that settled it.

TASTE: The lingering taste of chocolate chip cookies given by my sister-in-law's parents as a just because.

TOUCH: My feet are snuggled up right against Derek's side because burrowing them is the only option.

SMELL: Orange in the diffuser and Peppermint on my forehead to combat the faintest but obnoxious headache.


  1. aaw <3 husbands are the best, aren't they?? I love the fact that you use essential oils too! Hope your headache wasn't too pesky... do you have any recommendations for oils to use to prevent nightmares..? I seriously love your blog so much. xX

    1. Yes! Lavender works good for sleep, but I don't necessarily know about nightmares though. I fill a small bottle with witch hazel and then put like ten drops of lavendar and five of wild orange. Or just fifteen of lavender! And I spritz it on my sheets and pillows about 30 minutes before I go to bed.


Thanks for your feedback! :)
