La Dolce Vita.
Renaming Things I Love to something else. Because in the long run, all of these little pieces of life, the time that slips between the cracks, the pages that smell like old books, the people that come and go, the muscle pains two days after a work out, finding a bag on sale for even more than it was marked down to, these are all the odds and ends that make up our life. They’re the things that are quickest to be forgotten in stressful times and sometimes the least to be appreciated because they tend not to be part of the “big picture” (though sometimes they absolutely are).
mango hand lotion and glittery body mousse
starting a collection of Judy Blume books (15 years late but who cares?) So far, out of Forever, Deenie and Tiger Eyes, Tiger Eyes is my favorite
water and ac in my house is all that’s keeping me sane this summer
those rare perfect weather days
committing to myself again
counting Weight Watcher’s points and sticking to the program
making goals for myself
meditating in the back yard
Starbuck’s new refreshers drinks
buying a huge orange striped beach hat
Old fashioned movie theaters with black & white movie stars’ faces as wall paper for the entrance to the bathroom
What’s in your sweet life this week/ month/ year/ life?
hooray for baby cups of coffee!
inspired by Gala Darling
, this is my weekly love letter to the universe
*driving slowly by houses with Kat to see if we can tell if they have electrcity
*watching my dad try to kill a cricket (as it chrips tauntingly out of sight)
*trips to the library (books! how I’ve missed you! … as if I don’t have hundreds at home…)
*I’m excited to start Novel II with Francesca Lia Block this past weekend, the girls I met in her last class are amazing and inspiring and I’m looking forward to writing more
*Fall. It isn’t quite here yet, but when it is, I can’t help but talk about how much I love it (except for Daylight Savings
, that is)
*Making S’Mores by a campfire (even if the fire wouldn’t stay lit)
*Pumpkin Iced Coffee
*The Adventures of Pinocchio with Jonathan Taylor Thomas
*watching Ligers at King Richard’s Faire and trying on fairy wings
*The Stereotypes Exhibit at the Plimoth Plantation
*Trying out “Sparkle” Toothy Tabs (weird) and “The In The Shower” showerbomb (eh, after about two seconds my shampoo scent over powered the bomb) from Lush.
*Cupcake kits that make only -8- cupcakes!
*Finding awesome girls to write beautiful guest posts for Melanie Kristy
*learning ways to write better
*spending hours on end at Starbucks with my netbook (it’s no Borders, but it’ll have to do for now…)
*extended long weekends
*Fridays! (even if it isn’t quite the end of the week yet….)
*Meagan asking me if I’m writing my “I love thursdays”
