Reading: Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. I’m only a few chapters into this book, and it is SO GOOD. She writes about living a creative life and not letting fear stop you from doing and being what you really want. Her words are speaking so much truth in my life right now, and I keep finding myself underlining sentences and scribbling quotes on scrap pieces of paper. I think this is going to end up being an all-time favorite.
“And you have treasures hidden within you—extraordinary treasures—and so do I, and so does everyone around us. And bringing those treasures to light takes work and faith and focus and courage and hours of devotion, and the clock is ticking, and the world is spinning, and we simply do not have time anymore to think so small.”
Listening: Adele/25. Let’s be real—everyone loves Adele. She’s kind of like Paul Rudd or Ellen Degeneres. Plus, any Adele song makes for the best car jam session EVER.
Watching: Bryan and I are rewatching The Office, and it has become out nighttime routine. I forgot how much I love Jim and Pam. I also love that I have 30 minutes of downtime with my husband to look forward to at the end of the day.
Planning: Trips, trips, and more trips. We have some big, exciting travel plans in the near future (more on that later), and I am loving researching tours, museums, entertainment, and (most importantly) places to eat!
Loving: My new job. I’m one month into my new job, and it has been wonderful. It’s been overwhelming and stressful at points (as all new jobs can be), but I’m loving the people I work with and am excited to really jump into some big projects. It’s crazy/busy/exciting times around here!
