I began the month of February in Charleston, on a two-week trip (made possible thanks to working from home) with one clear objective in mind: escape winter in Minnesota for a little while. And that? That I did. I walked the streets for miles at a time, tried a whole host of restaurants, and took in each one of the many sights. It was a magical way to infuse a little energy into the winter season, and I can still feel the lingering effects of it as I sit at my desk back in Minneapolis on a blustery, snowy day.
I wish a little of that magic—the kind that comes from experiencing something new—for all of you this winter. It may not be a trip, but surely anything out of the ordinary will do. Consider taking up an activity you’ve been meaning to try (cross-country skiing, anyone?), venturing out to grab a bite at a new spot, or buying a fresh bouquet of flowers in the brightest shade you can find to add a little extra something to your home.
Below you’ll find a few cheerful home tours, a lovely sweater for spring, a case for bringing back personal blogging, and more. We’re also sharing the most-read articles and the best-selling products on Wit & Delight throughout the month of February so far. Enjoy!
3. This kale salad is so good we’ve made it three times (last night being the most recent!).
4. While it isn’t spring weather here yet, it’s been fun to browse so many lovely spring arrivals. The new collection at Alex Mill caught my eye—especially my very favorite sweater, which is now available in pink!
9. I bought this pleated lampshade to pair with a base I already had. I’m very pleased with the style and quality—especially for only $10.
10. A delightful poem on what it feels like to be at peace with yourself.
