Ever-Changing Reflection

Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding... It is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self. Therefore trust the physician, and drink his remedy in silence and tranquility.

Day 19: S

Click here to visit Lindsey's blog.

Please bear in mind, that when I think of what I am grateful for in these posts, it is a spur-of-the-moment thing. The first thing that pops into my mind, beginning with the day's letter, that positively affects my life, is what I write about.

That said, I couldn't help it today... I am so thankful for my sweatpants!

Lately, this is the picture of me daily. Every night, I cuddle with my couch and write my posts and catch up on your blogs while watching TV. Now that fall has settled into New England, I couldn't be more comfortable than in my sweatpants. They are warm, cozy, comforting, relaxing and soft. They are forgiving.

These are this year's version of my favorite sweatpants. Last year, I splurged on not one, not two, but THREE pairs of these pants in black, gray and maroon. Now that I work from home most of the time, these are my dress code. I am so thankful that I bought multiple pairs last year.

What I love about them is that they are so comfy around the house, but the tailored boot-cut fit makes me feel less sloppy when I wear them out for a grocery store run or even to the movies {I know, *gasp*}. They're also great for an impromptu Yoga workout in my living room or for dancing along with So You Think You Can Dance.

Thank you for the sweet comment and awesome suggestions! I really appreciate it!

I love my "sleepy" pants, I put them on as soon as I get home from work, they aren't the most attractive things but I lurve them regardless :)
