Hoarding pumpkin-scented everythings. Yesterday, I rubbed a pumpkin candle all over myself.
(Kidding... but the thought has crossed my mind.)
Loving crochet doilies. You'd think that I'd find a bajillion I like on etsy, but I am very picky about my doilies and the pattern used to crochet them. I'm a doily snob.
So excited that The Walking Dead starts season 5 this weekend (knuckles to all Walking Dead fans). I bought zombie cupcake toppers to celebrate. Best $15 I ever spent.
Catching our breath after celebrating our 13th anniversary (say whaaaaat?) and the little guy's 9th birthday. Did I ever tell you how much I love the Philips in my life? :)
Kissing Philly's teddybear. Because he started this new thing where I need to kiss his bear on the head, ear, and lips before he can snuggle up and fall asleep each night. I think I'm gonna cry when I am not asked to kiss bears at bedtime.
Reading The Artisan Soul. Oh. My. Gosh. It literally has 7 chapters so, technically, it's the best type of book to finish in a week. I doubt you will need that long. Fills. Up. My. Heart. Love this book.
Planning new projects. I could have character necklaces listed in my shop very soon. Niamh loves hers. And she is my quality control, so I think I'm about ready to share them:).
Drawing. I've literally drawn for hours upon hours this week...but still feel the itch to get back to it every night when I put the pencil down. I think that means I love my job:).
Wanting to try this essential oils craze...but realizing I have a lot to learn since I've been rubbing my kids with straight up, undiluted lavender oil for weeks now. I need someone to point me to a knowledgeable essential oil-er. For the sake of my kid's greased up torsos.
Missing Phil. Because he has been off the last few weeks and returns to work tomorrow. I love when we are all home together. (sniffles)
Working at being better at hospitality. I always felt hospitality-challenged since I suck at preparing food. But, as I work at making our home and life more available to friends and family and impromptu visits, I am finding that the two gifts (cooking/baking and hospitality) are not in actuality connected. And yes, sometimes I buy amazing cupcakes from Whole Foods and pretend I made them... but that is not the point. I've enjoyed having new friends over and look forward to many more coffee dates on the couch. With 'homemade' desserts. ;)
Buying fresh flowers. Every Friday. I go through the house and empty all my vases and add new flowers to them. If I could try a dream job for a day, I'd be a florist. Or a fair trade coffee company owner who travelled the world for the best tasting coffee beans. Maybe a mix of the two.
Dreaming. You ever just want to take a gigantic leap and try something bizarre and new and risky? I feel like that all the time. Maybe I'm just weird... But I think big dreams are a part of all of us and maybe the crystalized glimpses of what we are really made for.
What is on your 'Currently' list??
I'd love to read yours:)...
