3 things. & a kindred spirit coffee lover.

Happy Friday and happy November!

 It's officially almost the holidays and I'm anticipating cooler weather, cups of cocoa, sugar cookies and evergreen scented candles. Until then, let's enjoy all things autumn. Just stopping in tonight to share 3 things that made me smile this crazy week, things I am thankful for. And at the end, I have a special lady for you to meet!

3 things i am loving and thankful for...

I know you're wondering where the mug came from ... 
my amazing friend Chelsea MADE it!

Let me introduce you to an awesome blogger who is currently on my sidebar.
I truly love her blog and heart.
I asked her a few questions so you can get to know her better. 
She is the sweetest!

Friends, meet Tara.... from A Brew of Blessings!
A Brew of Blessings

1// Tell us a little bit about your blog & why you chose the name. (Which I adore, BTW as a coffee addict myself :) Hi to all of you sweet readers of Sweetness Itself, Tara from A Brew Of Blessings here to tell you what I am up to in my little corner of the blog world. First things first, I'm a believer that if you give a woman a cup of coffee, faith and a platform to stand on she can change the world. {Or at least hope}. Pretty simply the name for this blog was born out of the fact that I'm a coffee addict, lover of Starbucks and consider each new day a blessing from above! I am a Floridian native who has just moved across the big blue ocean and now call England my new home. I'm newly married to my very own prince charming and we are finding our way through this new adventure that we consider our personal fairytale. I've exchanged the sunshine for rain boots and country roads for city living. It's been a wonderful journey so far and I can't wait to see what the future holds. I hope you'll grab your favorite cup of joe & stop by and say hello ;)
2// What is God teaching you right now? The wonderful thing about such an amazing God is that His plans are far bigger than we can ever imagine. If you would have told me just over two years ago that I would be married and living in a new country I would have called you crrraaazzzy. But the Lord's thoughts are not ours. Lately He has been teaching me to be patient. Not to compare. And to realize that when I start to step out of my comfort zone things can happen. Big and small. Jeremiah 29:11 is a favorite of mine. He knows the plans and the future, I just have to trust and believe.

3// If you could only use 1 beauty product a day, what would your go-to item be? Definitely Rosebud lip balm. It's my absolute fav and can also be used as hand lotion! Two for the price of one and both are needed to help me fight off these cold weather effects!


Isn't she cute?
Go follow her, you won't regret it!
By the way, I LOVE Rosebud lip balm too. Favorite.
Hugs to you this weekend.
