Sunshine for Sick Days and Snow Days

Goodness, y’all. This week has been filled with curveballs, sick days, and snow days! It started off in the most wonderful way with the Patriots winning the Super Bowl (yay!) and a great day on Monday. Then on Monday night I suddenly came down with what I think was the flu. I took sick days yesterday and Tuesday, and am now doing much better! Food still lacks its usual appeal, but I think that should pass by the weekend. Now that I am feeling better and mostly ready to return to routine, we are in the thick of a snowstorm in New Hampshire! At last report, I heard 10-16″ in today’s forecast. Snow is beautiful, but being homebound and not being able to see Dillon is not my preference! To bring a little warmth and sunshine into this week, I am sharing some cheerful snippets with y’all today.

1. Lilly Pulitzer + S’well Bottles are coming to Starbucks! And they are gorgeous. I saw Emily Ley mention these on Instagram stories this morning and quickly took to the internet to learn more. I didn’t see any official information announced about this product, but there were a few postings on Instagram, including this one where I found the photo shared above. I have had my eye on a S’well bottle for a while now and would really like to pick one up if I find one at my local Starbucks in the upcoming days. Lilly collaboration products tend to go quickly even here in NH though, so we shall see!
