Happy Friday, friends! Good gracious, this has been a long week and I am ready for some much needed rest. And with so much good stuff on my agenda, I’ll be lucky if I get any. But that’s a good problems to have, right!?
So, I seem to have developed a “weekly song” component to our Weekend Send-Offs, eh? In which case, this little jig is perhaps just the happiest love song I’ve ever heard. And I’ve actually been listening to a lot of love songs lately, which is funny since I have no intentions of falling in love. (period). (ever). But love songs? I love.
Some of them make me sad, and some of them make me ache, and some of them just make me smile. But this one? This one is pure joy, and it NEVER fails to warm me up inside. (Go ahead – turn it up loud. Dance around a bit!)
Now that I’ve been back at blogging for awhile, I have to say . . . I am SO SO happy to be love-listing again! Hope you’re enjoying it too. Here we go!
Le Love List!
I once read a psychology study, which concluded that more quantifiable happiness is derived from thinking about an event, then in actually experiencing the event itself. That’s because we humans love to be excited, to imagine, and to anticipate. And with that in mind, I think the key to sustained happiness is to always having something wonderful on the horizon. Lucky for me, in the past few months I have, and you know what? IT WORKS!
Making difficult decisions and taking care of me, because I deserve that.
I found a big lemongrass plant on super sale at the Farmer’s Market, and you best believe I snapped that sucker up. Homegrown lemongrass, hot damn! There’s gonna be some incredible cooking going on around here, pho sure. (oh HA!)
Also! green juice .|. bath time with Waits .|. walking everywhere .|. working late late late into the night .|. my back yard! it’s shaping up to be so pretty .|. lemon water .|. the sound of a guitar .|. being myself, being authentic, not being afraid to be exactly who I am; embracing my creativity, embracing my dichotomies, embracing my
flaws awesomeness; finding my kind of people, finding the dark and the light and the balance, finding myself. Can I get a HUZZAH??!
Alright guys, now it’s your turn – let me know what you’re loving this week!
