monday mood lifter

for the week ahead, we plan on spending much of our time in the kitchen. looking at this assortment of festive colors and tactile splendor soothes me from thinking about the oncoming domestic overload. more importantly, this week will be about a pleasant gathering with familiar homespun scents, comforting food and family bonding. hope wherever you are, you will surround yourself with comforting company and food. happy thanksgiving.
