listening: to all sorts of podcasts as I go about my day. I just came across a handful of new shows that I am really enjoying, including Tara Brach and The Dinner Party Download. Of course, all my old faves (Joy the Baker, Simple Mom, After the Jump) are in heavy rotation as always.
thrifting: baskets, bowls, and any other fun containers to house plants in. I am so happy that my new favorite thrift store is literally right around the corner and I can walk there!
writing: wedding thank you notes. Martha says I have a month from our honeymoon to get them out, but for once, I want to get something in early. Plus, it gives me an opportunity to put my new address stamp to use!
loving: my new coffee maker from Anthro! Given our shortage of counter space, I was on the lookout for something along the lines of a French press and this totally fit the bill. All I have to do is fill it with coffee + water (no filter required!) and heat it up on the stove like a tea kettle.
grateful: to be living in a very walkable town. Running all my errands on foot and never once having to get in the car? Dream come true.
looking: for a good local gym with awesome group classes. I was far too spoiled by my last gym.
hoping: to have everything in it’s place by the weekend. I’ve been working on a few repurposing projects that only need a little more time before they’re ready to rock.
inspired: by a few new-to-me blogs! Thanks to Aileen from At Home In Love (which is one of my daily must-reads), I discovered Almost Makes Perfect, 1000 Threads, and Clementine Daily. Which blogs are you loving these days?
surprised: by how quickly the holidays are approaching! Normally I am dying for them to start, but right now all I can think about is setting up my everyday decor before any giant trees are brought into the mix!
laughing: at The Goldbergs! So many of the story lines in that show remind me of my own quirky family, which makes it extra funny for both John and me.
savoring: slow mornings. Daily thrift trips. Staying on top of my workload.
