Dancing around just a tiny bit (ok a lot) after booking a sweet mid-century house for my month-long stay to Austin this February. My friend Kathryne (from Cookie & Kate) agrees that freezing Kansas City winters aren’t for us. So this year we’re actually doing something about it and packing up our laptops, our cameras, and our dogs, and heading to Texas to try out working remotely for a month. And I can’t wait. Texas, tacos, and Tim Riggins…here we come!
Reading It Was Me All Along, an profoundly beautiful, vulnerable, and inspiring memoir by my friend Andie (from the blog, Can You Stay For Dinner). Good grief, this girl knows how to write. And much more, she knows how to live a brave life worth writing about. It’s available for pre-order now, and will be released on January 6. Hop on it.
Burning this candle every night. Never gets old.
Picking up the guitar again for the first time in years. And surprisingly, I’m really enjoying it.
Nodding along with this article about a better way to introduce friends at parties.
Staying faithful to my daily order for iced pour-over coffee at Quay, despite the fact that I’m the only one in the shop drinking anything non-hot this time of year. Iced coffee FTW!
Watching The Good Wife, nonstop. My lawyer crush has officially moved from Will to Cary. (Although I’m only on the third season, so no spoilers people!)
Counting down the days until my friends and I take off for Mexico on Dec. 26. Sunshine and beach time and friend time, hurry on up and get here!
Thinking a lot about what I want this section of the blog to look like in 2015. I’ve let it slide some this year, but would like for it to be my blogging “new year’s resolution” for next year. If you have topics you’d like me to write about, I’m all ears! Feel free to shoot me a message or leave a comment below. (And yes, I haven’t forgotten about the This Is Single series. I get emails and comments weekly asking if it’s continuing, and am considering taking it a step deeper next year. We’ll see!)
