I have a whole slew of coping mechanisms for dealing with stress. I love to read, that was the first ever strategy I had for dealing with tough times. It is so easy to escape into a good book, to step outside of yourself and fall into someone else's story. I will read almost anything. I am a fanatic for the Harry Potter series, but I have a pretty eclectic bookshelf. Fiction, nonfiction, romance, social criticisms, horror, and YA. Most recently, I finished a book called Candy Girl by Diablo Cody.
Today, I just needed something bit more comforting and caloric.
Yep, that's my life right now. Pomegranate raspberry tea, shortbread cookies, and a batman blanket (unpictured...obviously). What do you do to relax after long day? I always love hearing how other people unwind.
Which, conveniently brings us to our Etsy Dive! Today's mug was hand-painted by the beautiful and amazing Miss Mile! Now, full disclosure, she is a good friend of mine, but that doesn't make her mugs and glasses any less incredible! We have bought two mugs and two wine glasses from her, and I absolutely love them. She takes custom orders, which is perfect for bridal parties or toasting glasses! Her shop is currently on hiatus, but this is definitely one you want to watch.
For now, I must leave you. Sorry for the short post, as I mentioned right now is crazy for me.
