5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Love-FireConstructive conversations that come to good resolutions.
  2. That my sister and I can be sounding boards for each other. I love that she and I have a close relationship.
  3. Getting pulled into good books. Nothing like snuggling up in bed and reading for hours on end!
  4. Coming home to 10 packages the other day! It was, for the most part, the bulk of my Christmas shopping and then a few treats for me. So fun!
  5. That my job comes with good vacation and sick leave. Pretty lucky.

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Love-FireLazy Friday nights at home. Sometimes it’s just nice to finish off the workweek by relaxing and heading into the weekend at a slower pace.
  2. Long walks on warm fall mornings. We’ve got some gorgeous places to go get some light exercise out here in my neck of the woods. I love it!
  3. Hearing the Zac Brown Band in concert again. They’re absolutely amazing. If you ever get the chance to see them in concert, do it! I plan on never missing another one of their local shows again.
  4. Having an arsenal of good home remedies to get me through the nasty cold I’m battling at the moment. I’d much rather approach a cold from this angle than with a bunch of meds.
  5. Netflix and good books. Nothing like those two things to help you pass the time while lying in bed bored out of your mind.

  1. Love-FireThis song. It’s been on repeat this weekend. (If you’re reading this on your phone, that link may not work, so try this link. It’ll be lacking the awesome banjo and violin of the full version, but it’s the lyrics that really matter with this one.)
  2. Resting. That’s what I spent most of the weekend doing as I was pretty run-down. It’s hard for me to just sit and be still, but I really needed to do just that and I feel much better after having done so.
  3. This book. I almost didn’t read it because I find the title to be very off-putting and smarmy. Like he’s going to try to teach you to trick people or something. But this book is incredible! And not just from the perspective of success in business, but success in life, relationships with loved ones and friends, and so on. I highly recommend it for everyone.
  4. My mom, who drove all the way from her house to mine to bring me a few things simply because she wanted to “go play” in her new car. She’s like a 16 year-old. How cute is that?
  5. Street tacos. I think I could probably live on those suckers.

5 things I’m loving right now

  1. Love-FireBlackjack Porter from Lefthand Brewing with a few of my most favorite peeps.
  2. The fact that almost everything I have hanging on my walls was made by people I know and love. Original art is where it’s at, folks! (And I got to add some of my own work this weekend! A mosaic I made that is pretty cute, if I do say so myself.)
  3. Taking a big leap of faith in the presence of people who were strangers and then friends all through one shared experience.
  4. Spending the time to get my place in order. It’s been a tad messy lately as I’ve been coming and going so much. When my place is clean and orderly, I can better relax and enjoy it.
  5. Books that repeatedly yield those “ah ha!” moments.

5 things I’m loving right now

lovehandI’ve been a little socially maxed out over the past several weekends, so I decided to lay low and recharge a bit this past weekend. My whole plan was to do as little as possible, other than what I had to do. It was wonderful.

  1. Getting my hair done. By the time I get in there, I’m usually so annoyed with my hair that I’m about ready to shave my head. This time was no exception. But I always walk out of there happy as can be. My stylist must have the best job – making people that happy all day long!
  2. Lying down for what I thought would be a 30 minute nap and waking up two hours later feeling warm, content, and fully rested. I love having the time for that indulgence.
  3. Having plenty of good books around to read.
  4. Protein pancakes! I’m not very good at cooking pancakes, but these suckers taste good regardless!
  5. Gorging myself on the final season of Breaking Bad.
  • About Me

    My mother is an encyclopedia of useless information (sorry, ma, but it's true) - no one can beat her at Trivial Pursuit. As I age, I become more like dear old mom everyday. I routinely tell people about resources, recipes, tips, tricks, or websites I've heard about, tried, live by, etc. until one of my clients urged me to start a blog. So here it is! My perpetual ramblings. I hope you find them useful and amusing. If you don't, you can either keep it to yourself or leave me a well constructed critique.

    I'm a former massage therapist, a freelance journalist, and a web information architect and UX designer. I enjoy yoga, the Bar Method, camping, reading, gardening, and spending time with my friends and loved ones. I live in Colorado.
