I am so happy to continue the day in the life series with this week's post from Micaela. I think I must have discovered Micaela's blog through Danielle, and as we've gotten to know each other it turns out that we have a ridiculous amount of things in common with one another. The list of similarities just keeps getting longer and longer and I love following Micaela's blog to learn more about her. I know you'll enjoy getting to know her through this post, too!
my day always starts with copious amounts of coffee and cuddles from my puppies (this one is stella, the baby of our puppy family. her sisters are maverick and bubbles).
we'll go outside to our back porch, welcomed by the beautiful sky and mountains of el paso. i always read a daily word of encouragement from "365 day brighteners," a present from my parents. breakfast usually consists of oatmeal with honey, cinnamon, and apples. i always get ready using my favourite vintage mirror.
i'll spend the morning replying to emails/blog reading, chatting with my twin sister while she's at work in Wichita Falls (my home) and reminding myself i need to water our geraniums i'm trying desperately to keep alive in this desert climate. all of this to U2 shuffling on my ipod in the kitchen.
on a free day, i love nothing more than going on a thrifting date!
i could spend hours searching for gems or presents. these are two of my latest finds: vintage genuine leather crested mocs and a wood stand candle holder that goes well with the candelabra we have on our bedroom wall. i love nights my husband and i stay up laughing and talking while the candles glow...reminds me of Jane Austen novels.
i'll meet my husband and our friends for a lunch of Thai or Indian (our fave!), clean up around casa di M, and on certain days of the week around 7:30 i'll grab my yoga mat and head to my pilates/core class at the gym.
in the evening after dinner, i'll create postcard collages of images and typed quotes that have stayed with me to send across the miles. i'll change into one of the vintage nightgowns hanging inside my bathroom and try to read whatever book i'm in the middle of (right now it's a birthday gift, Redeeming Love by Francine Rivers) before slumber.
but usually my day ends the way it began...out on my back porch, but with a glass of wine.
Thank you, Micaela, for sharing a day with us! Be sure to go and check out Micaela's blog, Dolce Vita! Next week I'm psyched to a) have less than a week (!!!) left in my master's degree and b) to share a day in the life of Gale from Wichser Studio, who's been a friend of mine almost since I started this blog. Wow. Less than a week. Okay. Let's do this.
