I love these glasses. They’re Juliska. And well, you already know I have a slight addiction to the stuff. But really, I can’t help it. It makes me smile to drink my coffee, eat my cereal, serve my pasta. And now to drink…..well….my wine. I’m not gonna lie. Wine tastes good in these glasses.
They are beautiful.
Oh, sorry. You’re right, should haveÂ just gone with the straight shot.
You can’t really argue with it. Gorgeous.
I tell you all of this because a wise woman once told me that “you shouldn’t save the good plates and good glasses for company”. That YOU are special too. (And that wise woman may also be the woman behind Juliska). Life is just too short to just look at the stuff in your “special occasion” cabinet. She has taught me time and time, again how to spoil yourself with enjoying the simple moments.
If you serve tea, drink it out of a pretty tea cup.
Wine? Pull out a beautiful glass.

It was a casual lunch. My Favorite Fried Chicken Nuggets, a quick pasta salad, and a green salad with fresh lettuce from the Garden (I just love being able to do that!). Then Trader Joe’s Garlic Naan for a minute in the oven. From prep to kitchen clean up, it took me about 45 minutes for everything. But only because the kids were “helping”…might have been quicker without the help. Just sayin’
Kids were down for their naps when Mom and Sis arrived. We enjoyed a few moments of peace and quiet…
And then the Littles world woke up, and we enjoyed a wonderful lunch. A beautiful and relaxed afternoon. Loved that we spoiled ourselves just little.
Don’t use the paper plates and cups all the time. It sure makes it easy, and I’m not gonna lie, I do it often! But it’s really nice to feel like a grown up and do something pretty for yourself sometimes. I love using every single Juliska piece that I own, it just makes me take an extra minute to catch my breath and enjoy whatever I’m eating or drinking, without feeling stuffy and formal.
Simply perfect is what it is.
Spoil yourself. You deserve it!
(Disclaimer ~ This is not a sponsored post, I LOVE my Juliska. Every piece I own is a favorite thing and I love to share it all with you as the collection grows. These opinions are my own.)
