My Favorite Etsy-Inspired Day

My favorite type of morning starts out slowly, with me sitting at my laptop with a cup of delicious hot coffee and feeling warm and comfy in my pjs and slippers.

After eating my breakfast, writing my blog, answering emails, checking in on Facebook and Twitter, I begin to get myself ready for my day, beginning with a shower and moisturizing.

Dressing and putting on a cozy scarf and hat, I head out for a nice long walk with my dog.

After a brisk walk, I run a few errands, taking a sack with me so as not to have to bring more plastic bags home.

Returning from the market with some groceries for dinner, I've chosen a family favorite that requires little effort and cooks in one pot and ladles into big bowls. With a sourdough baguette, a side salad and a glass of wine (milk for the kids!), dinner will be complete.

I check my Etsy shop and find that several items from my shop have been purchased, which I then package and prepare to drop off at the post office.

Off I run to pick my daughters up from school, bringing snacks for the ride home. Stopping at the post office and then the library to choose a video to watch together, we head home for a cozy evening, eating dinner and then cuddling together on the couch under a soft blanket and eating a bowl of popcorn!

It was a simple day without much to check off my "to do" list, but it was a wonderful day, that ends with my husband in a delightful way! ;-)
