Bits of Sweetness

Favorite treats

It's been freezing here lately(literally). There's nothing liking a cup of hot tea and some good cookies.


Walkers Shortbread are my favorite in the world. It makes me wish we were in England to have daily tea time . They would be on my plate often. I find myself taking time more often to just sit with a cup of tea while journaling or reading. What is it that makes it so relaxing? I'm not sure but I'll take another pure butter shortbread cookie while I ponder that!



Did you know January 6th is National Shortbread Day? I did not until this year but it's one I'll gladly celebrate! You can shop online here and find your favorite shortbread treats.

A trip into the wild + a JORD watch giveaway!

Thanks to JORD watches for providing this product to me in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are 100% my own. 

We took a little trip into the wild earlier this week to one of our favorite places. This handsome hubs of mine wanted to have a family day. You don't have to ask me twice to agree to a fun day off for him- he works hard between his job and the electrical engineering program he's in. If anyone deserves a little break, it's him. I booked our zoo tickets (to embrace our wild side and our kids' monkey sides) and we ventured down south for the day. The high was 25 for the morning and 31 for the day (wild side, indeed!)

He still makes me swoon eleven years later! 

I spoiled him for Christmas this year with a watch from JORD. One of our goals this year is to spend more time together without screens, and it makes it easy to check the time without being pulled into hours of Facebook as well! Plus look at what a stud my sweet guy is wearing it! I think it adds the perfect touch to his outfit! (His co-workers have all been asking about it too, which he loves! Statement piece I would say!)

I love the duo wood tone of the band! It really stands out!


Oh this makes me happy. 

There are some things in life that are a joy. Doing life with this guy is one! Blessing him with special things in life (like the watch and some special memories) is another! He does every role he has so well- office specialist, engineering student, son, husband, friend, and Dad. It's neat to see him living out his dream of being a dad. The kids just delight in sharing moments with him. We haven't had a family day for a while so it was just special. (And cold. It was freezing cold. But the smiles warmed my heart and my toes!)
