I'm Back! Health Update + Three Lovely Things

I'm so excited, happy and thankful to be back! Surgery went well- thank you for all your warm wishes and good vibes!

The surgeons were able to locate the hole that caused my cerebrospinal fluid leak, and repair it. The after-surgery was somewhat difficult, but I'm already feeling far better. I'm still experiencing some intense headaches and eye pain, and I'm still easily tired, but it's going better every day. Surgeon said that we now need to see if the leak reappears, but he is optimistic and says everything looks great so far. So it looks like after almost a year, this is finally over and my health should keep improving.

Again, thank you so much for your support throughout the year, and especially right before surgery. It meant a lot, really.

And I'm also thrilled to be back just in time for some holiday projects and holiday-related posts- yay! 

In the meantime, here are three things I'm loving today:

1. How to DIY a tiny space for big results from Refinery29. I'm not sure how this apartment qualifies as a "tiny space", but it sure is lovely, and the article includes some great tips that can be implemented in any place.

2. The secret to simple cauliflower soup from The Clever Carrot- a delicious recipe and a simple trick to make the soup both easier and quicker to cook, and more flavorful.

3. DIY vinyl and marble paper clutch from For the Makers- super easy and pretty, and it would make a lovely gift as well!
